Elizabeth McQueen Meets Brothers Lazaroff - Sunday, July 7 @ Atomic Cowboy

Saturday (July 6):

Harvest Sessions w/ Arthur & the Librarian @ Tower Grove Farmers' Market 10 a.m. | free How's this for a way to start your Saturday? Shop for fresh local produce, devour some crepes prepared on site and let the little ones splash around in the wading pool, all to the soothing sounds of 2013 RFT Music Award nominees under the folk category, Arthur & the Librarian. (MS)

Twista @ Old Rock House 8:30 p.m. | $25-$50 Twista can rap faster than your favorite rapper and will master any tongue-twister you would dare to throw at him. From Chicago, Twista has been playing St. Louis a lot lately; this is a good thing. (DH)

Will Hoge plays Off Broadway and the Reptilian rocks the Radskeller this evening, as well. Click the links to learn more.

Sunday (July 7):

Elizabeth McQueen Meets Brothers Lazaroff w/ DJ Pome, Thelonius Kryptonite @ Atomic Cowboy 10 a.m. | free Elizabeth McQueen, of country outfit Asleep at the Wheel, joins forces with Brothers Lazaroff to celebrate the release of their single together, "Gone Solid Gone," off of an upcoming EP. Enjoy it over brunch! (MS)

Cellular Chaos w/ Skarekrau Radio (Album Release) @ Apop Records 9 p.m. | $5 Your Sunday just got a lot stranger. RFT Music spoke with Skarekrau frontman Rick Wilson last year about his new album, and it's finally seeing the light of day. Read about it here, and pick up a copy in person while checking out Weasel Walter (of the Flying Luttenbachers, XBXRX, Lake of Dracula and Behold... the Arctopus fame) as he slaughters strings in a crazy new female-fronted noise rock band. (MS)

The Fleshtones w/ St. Paul and the Broken Bones @ Off Broadway 8 p.m. | $12-$18 Queens, New York's the Fleshtones formed in 1976, playing garage-rock and sharing a practice space with the Cramps. (DH)

If you're a big softie, consider seeing John Mayer instead.
