2014 RFT Music Showcase in the Grove

The 2014 RFT Music Showcase was full of firsts -- first time in the Grove neighborhood, first time that a record-setting 88+ bands performed, first time that a downpour and multiple tornado warnings threatened to halt the event. The sun and good tunes prevailed, though, and thousands of St. Louis music lovers got down to performances by Black Panties, Nato Caliph, Middle Class Fashion, Last to Show First to Go and many more on June 7, 2014.

Winners of the 2014 RFT Music Awards will be announced Tuesday, June 10, at Atomic Cowboy and on rftmusic.com. The event features live performances by St. Louis artists and is free and open to the public.
