The Ten Best Shows In St. Louis This Weekend: July 20 to 22

Josh Ritter - Saturday @ Plush

Tef Poe - War Machine 2 Release
@ The Gramophone
w/ Corey Black, Family Affair, Doorway, Snipes, ATM, Indiana Rome, Chalkboyz, Odd Blazing, Legend Camp, Buff N Chubb, Rob Gullate, Ooops, Jonezy
9:00 p.m. | $8-$10
Masterful rapper (and, to be fair, RFT Music columnist) Tef Poe gives his strongest release to date a proper welcome into the world. (KM)


Josh Ritter and the Royal City Band
@ Plush
8:00 p.m. | $20-$23
No seriously, get there early. As usual, there is no topping RFT Music Senior Writer, who on the occasion of Ritter's last show in St. Louis said, "To describe the music of Josh Ritter as earnest is to call Horatio Alger hopeful, Holden Caulfield disaffected and Hamlet a mama's boy. He's as sincere as a sonnet, as genuinely happy a performer as you'll ever see outside a circus where the free lemonade is laced with Zoloft. He knows he's lucky and he's supremely comfortable in his sweat-soaked skin. He gives hugs to strangers and music critics." (KM)

Karate Bikini CD Release
@ Off Broadway
w/ Heebie Jeebies,The Boorays
9:00 p.m. | $5-$8
The psych-pop rockers in Karate Bikini release the band's new CD at this show, entitled Sauce of the Apple Horse. Openers Heebie Jeebies and The Boorays are each reuniting for this show as well, so don't miss 'em. (DH)

Big Freedia & The Divas
@ The Firebird
8:00 p.m. | $10-$15
The undisputed queen of "sissy bounce" comes to the Firebird to make the asses drop. Assemble your twerk team. (DH)


Scott Lucas and the Married Men
@ The Firebird
8:00 p.m. | $10
Scott Lucas is one half of rock duo Local H. His work with the Married Men is his more introspective solo work. We think it is amusing that his "solo" band contains fewer members than the "main" one, but we're fans either way. (DH)
