The Ten Best Shows In St. Louis This Weekend: September 7 to 9

Peanut Butter Wolf - Saturday @ Lola
This weekend is a good one for local artists, as it includes two album release shows and a music video release party. Friday night will see the release of Old Capital Square Dance Club's new CD at Off Broadway, as well as Spelling Bee's latest offering at the Schlafly Tap Room. The former is ten dollars and the latter is free. Also on Friday will be the release party and viewing of Soma's new music video; that one will cost you five bucks. There are shows this weekend of the non-local non-release non-Friday variety as well, believe it or not -- check out the rest of our picks below.


Old Capital Square Dance Club CD Release Show
@ Off Broadway
7:00 p.m. | $10
The brick box on Lemp continues a stunningly good run of shows with the OCSDC (how's that for a mouthful?) release show. We've heard this record and, you know, buy. (KM)

@ The Heavy Anchor
w/ Frances with Wolves
9:00 p.m. | $5
A real big-city, world class band landed in our right pocket when Schwervon! relocated to KC. And Fances with Wolves is the best band in St. Louis that never seems to crack the radar much. (KM)

Soma Video Release
@ The Gramophone
w/ Money for Guns, Tok
8:00 p.m. | $5
Soma's video has a puppet theme, so the band is bringing something of a "puppet photo booth" for fans to mess around with during the show -- amateur puppeteers, take note! (DH)

Spelling Bee Album Release
@ Schlafly Tap Room
w/ Fumer and VERY SECRET BAND (Hint: Mind gerund)
9:00 p.m. | Free
It's really good, even if you aren't looking to be punished. No, seriously -- go try it out for yourself. The three songs available so far are loud, purposeful and even occasionally hummable! (KM)

Under Cover Weekend
@ The Firebird
w/ LucaBrasi, Volcanoes, Humdrum, Animal Empty, Aquitaine, Via Dove, Dots Not Feathers, Palace, Last To Show First To Go, Arthur and The Librarian
Friday and Saturday
8:00 p.m. | $10
However you feel about the methods, the results are a genuine party. There will be costumes, sing-alongs had and all stops pulled. Enjoy it. (KM)
