Marnie Stern is coming to St. Louis. There is almost no sentence I would rather write; this should be amazing. Last year's Marnie Stern turns me into a puddle of awestruck music dork every time I hear it. She's playing at the Firebird on July 6th. Tickets are $10 and on sale now. Only slightly more renowned for her guitar playing abilities than for her vulgarity, Stern seemed to reach some clarity of vision with this most recent release.
