The Ten Best Things To Do This Weekend in St. Louis: February 4 to 6
Get out while you can -- before it starts snowing (again). Sigh. Some shows are here. Others are below. Also, note: Buckcherry at Pop's is sold out, so unless you have tickets -- you are out of luck.

Firebird 2nd Anniversary Show
KC sandblasters the Life and Times were going to headline the near-downtown venue's second birthday bash -- but thanks to the weather, the band is stuck in other cities and can't get to St. Louis. (They will reschedule, however.) No matter! The local bands playing -- Tilts, Dicegrinder and the debut of False Moves -- ensure the night will still be a fine time. 8:30 p.m. $10.
Half Gay, Bikini Acid and Key Grip @ Schlafly Tap Room
A local triple bill of epic proportions: Key Grip, destructo-disco kings Half Gay and Bikini Acid, the "Krautrock-influenced, midnight-hued psych-rock" act who will have a cassette demo on hand. 8 p.m. Free. All-ages.
Illphonics @ The Gramophone
Congratulate the forward-thinking hip-hop group on its Wakarusa 2011 slot. 9 p.m. 18+ $5 plus a $3 minor surcharge.
LucaBrasi @ Old Rock House
Norris Division, the group's latest album, shows it to be "committed to note-perfect, intricately layered musicianship. The barest hint of a backbeat and traces of nicely delayed guitars lend a reggae-like feel to "How Long?" That strain is amplified on the Police-like "Infinite Ceiling," which uses Jerry Jost's processed guitar tones to great effect." With Black Market Peace, the Adoring Heirs. 9 p.m. 18+. $6, plus $2 minor surcharge.
Steve Angello @ Europe Nightclub
Angello is one-third of the hot DJ/production troupe Swedish House Mafia. 9 p.m. With Rob Lemon, Thomas and Drue. $30 to $40.
