The Weekend That Was in St. Louis: What Else Happened?
From my operatives scattered around town this weekend, I hear that nearly every club was packed both Friday and Saturday nights. Along with British Sea Power -- for a slideshow of photos from this show, click here! -- and Explosions in the Sky, I also hit the Bluebird to see Jon Hardy & the Public on Friday -- it was packed, the band was amazing, etc. -- and the Billiken Club to see School of Language (hi, XTC meets the Police meets Pink Floyd, excellent).
But I also heard that the Monads sold out Off Broadway Friday night, and that the Gram Parsons tribute was a rousing success the following day, and that Rough Shop's CD release show at Schlafly was also well-attended.
Comment away -- what did you see? What was great? Set the scene.
