Lamb of God
If you need some good solid metal in your life, leave it up to the 20 year veterans in Lamb of God. Their newest album, Resolution, came out earlier this year. They have been nominated twice for a Grammy for Best Metal Performance but lost to Slayer and Judas Priest, respectively. Let them shred your face for a few hours.

Spend an evening with your favorite former Chassidic reggae superstar. The newly-shaven Hebrew rapper/beatboxer is supporting Spark Seeker, released in July. You may remember him from “King Without a Crown” but his new stuff is pretty good as well.

Thursday, November 15
Delta Spirit

Friday/Sat November 16 & 17
The Urge
Let’s hope this is becoming a new annual tradition. Last year they sold out both nights and recorded a live DVD. This year they are having a release party for said live DVD. They also just added a THIRD show on Fri Nov 23 with special guests GRAVITY KILLS! Tickets for that show as well as Friday the 16th are on sale now, Saturday is sold out.

The Urge - Night #3 Special Guests: GRAVITY KILLS
Just Added! Night Three also features industrial rockers Gravity Kills, who are most famous for “Guilty” and “Enough” both of which were released waaay back in 1996. No joke though, Gravity Kills kicked some serious ass and this excites the hell out of me. They are also in the process of recording new material.

Thursday, November 29

Asking Alexandria / As I Lay Dying
This show was also billed to have Suicide Silence as part of the lineup but that probably won’t be happening.
Last week, Mitch Lucker, frontman for the deathcore band, died of injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident in SoCal.


Tuesday, November 6

Lee DeWyze
Another former American Idol winner comes to town, this time its 2010’s AI Champ Lee DeWyze as part of his Acoustic Duo Tour, playing songs from his yet to be released debut album. Just last month Kris Allen was at Off Broadway. Maybe next month Blake Lewis or that Justin guy that came in second to Kelly Clarkson will be at your local high school gym.

Thursday, November 8
The Wailers
Legendary backing band for a man you may have heard of, Bob Marley. What are you waiting for, just go!

Friday, November 9
Over The Rhine
with Joel Henderson

Sunday, November 11
I know nothing about this band other than what I just read from their Facebook page, but apparently many folks do because its sold out. Sorry

Tuesday, November 13
State Radio
Side project of Chad Stokes, best known as guitarist for Dispatch. State Radio provides guitar driven alternative music with a reggae feel and some politically fueled lyrics. Always a good time live, check them out!

Wednesday, November 14
The Infamous Stringdusters
They were just in town at the beginning of September as part of the original lineup for the Del Yeah! Festival that was rescheduled due to inclimate weather. The Stringdusters played and closed the night out in front of a near sold out crowd. Now they come back through on a headlining tour for the release of Silver Sky-Deluxe Edition, a re-release of their most recent album that includes a full length live album and bonus tracks. The Infamous Stringdusters are one of those bands that you need to see if you are at all into bluegrass or string music. They are an incredibly talented group of musicians, write great songs, and just bring a lot of energy to a room. They also sometimes play with GoPro cameras mounted on their instruments and release the videos on their Youtube page, which is fun.

Saturday, November 17
The Hatrick, Old Salt Union & Kansas Street Ramblers.
$1.00 of every ticket sold will be donated to The Folk School of St. Louis. Go listen to some good tunes and help out a great cause to create more good tunes for your earholes.

Wednesday, November 21
Madahoochi & Friends present ‘The Last Waltz’
TWO NIGHTS! Wednesday 11/21 performing The Band’s The Last Waltz concert film in its entirety. Friday 11/23 you can catch Madahoochi performing all your favorite Hooch songs and who knows what else. The three time RFT Best of St. Louis Award Winner is technically still a band, but two of the members now live in Florida and the rest are involved in other projects so shows are scarce. With more than fifteen years under their belt, they are still one of the best bands St. Louis has produced. Get your ass out and dance with the Hooch!

Saturday, November 24

Tyler Ward

Cheap Girls/ The Front Bottoms/ We Should Leave This Tree

“Exposed In The Light” 2012 Tour will be a true Pink Floyd ‘immersion’. New for this year is a state of the art surround sound system bolstered by new lasers, lights and jaw-dropping video effects.

Ragtime string music done the right way. They won a Grammy for Best Traditional Folk Album in 2010 for Genuine Negro Jig.
