STL Loud 4 

Noon. Saturday, June 23. PrideFest at Tower Grove Park, 4256 Magnolia Avenue.

The STL Loud series compiles new songs from a wide range of local artists.

The STL Loud series compiles new songs from a wide range of local artists.

For the past two years, local producer Ryan Albritton has been dutifully recording local bands in his R&R Music Labs studio and compiling the results on the STL Loud compilations. The concept's simplicity is its biggest benefit: Each band contributes one new, unreleased track and thus becomes part of a roughly biannual tip sheet for new local talent. The newest edition, subtitled "Pride for Our City," is the most ambitious to date, with eight bands featured on the comp and on the release show that takes place during PrideFest in Tower Grove Park. Bo and the Locomotive, Dots Not Feathers, the Jump Starts, Union Electric and others made the lineup for a show that doubles as a point of pride, in all the meanings of word.

Dance Commanders: It's a safe bet that soul-struttin' funk band Big Brother Thunder & the MasterBlasters will get hips shaking at this come one, come all festival.
