Parachute Musical play Cicero's on Saturday.
Parachute Musical play Cicero's on Saturday.
Parachute Musical subtly embeds smart time changes and highly involved arrangements within its infectious, slick piano-pop. The ivory-twinkling focus and epic dynamics of the Nashville quartet's songs occasionally resemble Jack's Mannequin, and its penchant to make things swing a bit might draw somewhat-obvious Ben Folds Five comparisons. $8. Read the rest of Shae Moseley's preview here.

Lemuria at Illegal Tone Recordings in Belleville (Saturday)
Led by diminutive frontwoman Sheena Ozzella, Lemuria -- completed by drummer Alex Kerns and new bassist Kyle Paton -- is helping bring back a style of indie rock popularized by '90s groups such as Sebadoh, the Lemonheads and Velocity Girl. By mixing these influences with elements from modern acts such as the Weakerthans and Rainer Maria, Lemuria crafts powerful punk-pop concoctions all its own. $5. Read the rest of Annie Zaleski's preview here.

Lola Grand Grand Opening (Saturday)
New downtown St. Louis restaurant Lola (500 North 14th Street) holds its grand opening party on Saturday night. Admission is free. Here's the party's Facebook page so you can see who's going. Music by Urban Groove Project. Get there around 9 p.m., say organizers.

Punch Drunk Comedy at Cicero's (Sunday)
This alternative comedy night at Cicero's costs just $5 if you're older than 21 and $8 if you're a minor. Organizers liken it to New York's bygone Invite Them Up or Comedy Death Ray in LA. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. More information is available at the Cicero's Web site.

Let's Go Fishing Show at the Gateway Center in Collinsville (All Weekend)
Look, life offers very few certainties. If you see money on the ground, pick it up. If you're offered a free beer, drink it. If dessert is included in the price, eat it. If you have a chance to meet Mr. Crappie, you shake hands with Mr. Crappie. And guess what you can do Friday through Sunday (January 8 through 10) at the Gateway Center (1 Gateway Drive, Collinsville; 618-288-9952 or www.letsgoshows.com)? Wally "Mr. Crappie" Marshall, the man who knows more about catching crappie than any other angler in the business, will be discussing the art of fishing at the 2010 Let's Go Fishing Show -- go learn from the master. $3-$7. Read the rest of Paul Friswold's preview here.
