The Vanilla Beans CD Release - Friday, Apr. 26 @ Foam
Hey stuff: Stop breaking! It's been an interesting week of recovery for RFT Music. Our website totally beefed it last weekend, our blog server gave itself some sort of boo-boo that still has a flimsy band-aid holding it together for the time being, and most disconcertingly, our stealth music editor Daniel Hill had to swear off beer for awhile to regain his stomach's health -- why, blog gods, why?!

Let's go see some awesome shows. Yeah, that'll make it all better! In addition to these recommendations, jump over to this week's Out Every Night post to read about Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis, LucaBrasi, Four Hands (AKA Rick Weaver), Ghostface Killah and Bill Frisell's Beautiful Dreamers.

Did we leave something significant out? There's a chance it didn't make it onto our radar! Send your show tips anytime to clubs@riverfronttimes.com.

Friday (April 26):

Brett Gretzky Album Release
w/ Two4One, Dusty Wallets, Allen Gates
@ The Firebird
9 p.m. | $7-$8
Look, it is about as simple as this: If Indyground is involved, you should be paying attention. Got it? Good. (DH)


Brett Gretzky

Great Isaac
w/ Brotherfather, My Molly, Carriage House
@ The Gramophone
9 p.m. | $5
Fresh off the release of its latest album, folk-rock quintet Great Isaac takes it to the Gramophone. Only five bucks! (DH)

Sander Van Doorn
w/ Rob Lemon, SlantE
@ Europe Nightclub
9 p.m. | $15-$30
Europe Nightclub has been killing it lately, in terms of EDM bookings. Dutch artist Sander Van Doom comes to you all the way from Europe; maybe you can make it off of your couch. (DH)

The Vanilla Beans CD Release
w/ WILLIS, Carte De Visite
@ Foam
8:30 p.m. | free
This band lists its "interests" on Facebook as "being a better band." Gotta love the humility, but you also shouldn't deny the infectious indie-pop the band produces. Pick up their latest at this show. (DH)

Saturday (April 27):

The Missouri Blues Caravan
w/ The Billy Bats, The Mojo Roots, The Bottoms Up Blues Gang
@ BB's Jazz, Blues and Soups
6 p.m. | $5-$10
Catch some great blues acts from all over the state in one convenient showcase! The bands above hail from Kansas City, Columbia and St. Louis respectively and play all three cities this weekend in a one-time revue style show called The Missouri Blues Caravan. (MS)

I must've missed it, my bad. Keep up the good work!

Hey Andrew Graham, just a heads-up: If you re-read the intro paragraphs to this post you will see that Bill Frisell is indeed included, and even was mentioned in our weekly show picks post (and a print edition critic's pick).

ya you definitely missed something. Bill Frisell at Old Rock House. How could you leave that out, but include The Vanilla Beans CD Release w/ WILLIS, Carte De Visite @ Foam??? Doesn't make much sense to me
