"Teen Wolf: Bloodthirsty Power Forward" -- Art by JERT. Read below for more on his art show this weekend.
The RFT's office has an interesting soundtrack of its own this summer. Take, for instance, the saxy guy tootin' for loose change outside or the busker heard down the street letting out a blood-curdling "Go, Johnny! Go-oo-oo--ooo!" a mere block away from Chuck's statue. How about the sound of children's laughter coming from down the hallway as intrepid RFT Music writer Allison Babka conducts a special social experiment? Stay tuned to learn more. The hits just keep comin', folks.

Friday (July 12):

Jert and Partney: Propaganda in the War Against Boredom
w/ Dropout Boogie DJ Collective
@ Mad Art Gallery

The artist who calls himself "Jert" is Jeremy Townsend, former St. Louisan and singer of 12 Gauge Blues many moons ago. His work is AWESOME -- see for yourself; he's responsible for the art that leads this post. Then, come to the oepning of his art show, where he and fellow subversive Aaron Partney will be selling prints and doing live painting sessions. (DH)

@Sonia Wagner The Urge is mentioned under Saturday. Please feel free to comment about shows that are not included, as we simply cannot cover every show in just one post (see the note at the end of our article), but do try to actually read the post before commenting. Thanks!
