The Ten Best Shows in St. Louis This Weekend: May 17-19



Brothers Lazaroff

Rhizomatic St. Louis Vol. 2 Cassette Release Show
@ Kerr Foundation Building
w/ John Tamm-Buckle, Radiant Husk, Byssus, Marble
9 p.m. | $5
Local avant garde and experimental music collective Close/Far puts together its second collection of free improv and electronically-based songs. Projections by artists Ajaj Khanna and Jeremy Kannapell enhance live performances for a combination audio and visual experience to be remembered. (MS)

Wind & Fire CD Release
@ The Chapel
7 p.m. | $10-$15
I went to read more about this, since it is a CD release, and it's pretty cool. Mark Holland & N. Sott Robinson use instrumentation from around the world, including tons of percussion and flute, resulting in what sounds like remarkably like public radio bumper music. Neat! (DH)

Sunday (May 19):

The Steve Strayhorn Celebration to Benefit the American Cancer Society
w/ Mike and Nick Swedo, Rusty Van Gogh, Choozey Muthers, Brian Clark, Planet Boogie, Full Moon, Gypsy Jones, Uncle Albert
@ Plush
2 p.m. | $10
Cancer sucks a fat one and we all know it. Now put your money where you mouth is about it, and catch a great show. Good cause, good cause! (DH)
