This weekend, lots of great acts come through town including Justin Townes Earle, Dead Rider, Kevin Gates, REO Speedwagon, the Reptilian and more. Choose from one of those shows or check out a local series called Vibes, featuring art and music. Read on our recommendations.

Friday (August 8):

Dead Rider w/ The Conformists, Yowie @ The Firebird 8:30 p.m. | $8-$10 Dead Rider, an experimental rock outfit formed by U.S. Maple's Todd Rittman, plays some of the most demented yet dance-worthy songs you'll ever hear. Check out some videos and more on the Dead Rider website. (MS)

Justin Townes Earle w/ Emily Wallace @ Off Broadway 8:30 p.m. | $23-$33 In case you missed it, check out Roy Kasten's excellent feature story from this week's print edition, in which he heaps praise on Earle's latest record, Single Mothers. (DH)

REO Speedwagon w/ Chicago @ Verizon Wireless Amphihtheater 7 p.m. | $15-$200 Though Chicago should be headlining, REO Speedwagon is OK too, I guess. But get there in time for Chicago, you fool. Best band. (DH)

Vibes w/ Centipede x Abnormal, Prospect, The Souls of Liberty, Ciej, Domino Effect, Con, Mic-Key, Zado, Chris Smith Jr., LSTMBRS @ Blank Space 8 p.m. | $8-$11 In addition to performances from some of St. Louis' sickest rappers, look forward to checking out plenty of visual stimuli ranging from photography and graffiti to live painting and fashion.
