The Ten Best Things To Do On Labor Day Weekend In St. Louis

Tower-groove-records-carnival-what-to-do.jpg
Welcome to our favorite Commie holiday, where we celebrate the laborers by taking Monday off and no longer wearing white. We'd say something about the coming of Fall, but our landlord just announced they've decided to keep the pool we share with a nearby apartment complex open until the end of September, presumably out of pity.

We will not be spending time there, however (and aren't you glad you know?) because there is too much music to enjoy. Tonight, Adult Fur releases part II of his forward-thinking, ass kicking debut -- this part is appropriately titled ii. Sunday brings the Tower Groove Carnival you've all been waiting for, with a dizzying lineup of local talent, games, excitement and the satisfaction of getting to tell people you saw it when.

Tig Notaro just cancelled due to travel issues.

Is there no one at the RFT that is aware we have a local tradition of great blues music? There was no mention last week of the STL Blues Week concerts on Washington. This week there is no mention of the Big Muddy festival on the landing nor the Soulard Blues Cruise. Some of our best and most internationally recognized "local musicians" are blues players. You don't have to love the music to respect the talent and history. Here's hoping someone, at least, notices when they open a National Blues Museum downtown.
