ShowcaseSTL 2017 Was RFT's Best Music Showcase Yet -- And These Photos Prove It

On Friday and Saturday, RFT held its annual all-local music showcase in the Grove. Although it was the 16th year for the music festival, it was also a year of firsts -- the first time it was known as ShowcaseSTL, the first time it spanned two days, and the first time it wasn't a competition. Instead, ShowcaseSTL highlighted the best acts of the past year, bringing our largest lineup yet of more than 100 acts to eight different venues. Photographer Sara Bannoura was at ShowcaseSTL to document some of the amazing acts, as well as the many fans that came out to celebrate St. Louis' music scene. For more on the bands, see our STL-77 issue, which honors the 77 St. Louis-based bands and musicians doing amazing things right now.
