It's A Dog's Life 

What happens to a musician after trying for years to make the big time, only to be thwarted by fate, other bandmates and questionable managers? In the case of Steve Scorfina, you give up your dreams of a music career and settle into life as an antiques dealer. As a teenager, Scorfina played with Mike and the Majestics (which featured a younger Michael McDonald), helped start the Good Feelin', was in an early version of REO Speedwagon and eventually founded local favorites Pavlov's Dog, who came tantalizingly close to breaking nationally. At 60 years old, Scorfina has decided to give music another spin as a solo artist. Thomas Crone chronicled the rise and near-miss and rise again in his film Old Dog, New Trick, which was produced by Scorfina's son (and all-around awesome guy), Jon Scorfina. Tonight at 7 p.m., Old Dog, New Trick screens at the Savoy (119 South Florissant Road, Ferguson;, just down the road from the space where Pavlov's Dog wrote their first two albums. Steve Scorfina will perform his new album, Dog Trax, after the show, and the Good Feelin' will also reunite and perform for the first time in 40 years. Tickets are $15.
