Show-Me Skills 

The Show-Me Sound organization is drumming up a lot of enthusiasm for its third annual Showdown: Historically Black College and University Drum Line Show and Recruitment Fair. Seven of the nation's premier percussion ensembles go head to head to battle for a $10,000 cash prize for their school's drumline program. The event begins on Market Street and Jefferson Avenue this Saturday at 9:30 a.m. with the Showdown Parade, as percussionists pound the pavement west to Saint Louis University’s Chaifetz Arena (1 South Compton Avenue). From 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m, the arena will host a free college-recruitment career fair, leading up to the 2 p.m. showdown. Tickets for the battle are $15.
