The Ten Best Shows in St. Louis This Weekend: August 9 to 11
This weekend, our intrepid music editor Daniel Hill and reporter Drew Ailes endure a full weekend of the Gathering of the Juggalos. In Daniel's stead, attend some concerts this weekend while he does dog-knows-what in the woods or wherever the heck he is. Head to the biennial Printbangerz Ball for a chance to check out a bunch of amazing art, catch the Cuban Missiles and get a chance to purchase some of the late, beloved musician Bob Reuter's signature black-and-white photo prints before congregating in September for an official memorial event. Plenty more opportunities to rub shoulders with like-minded music lovers await after the jump.

"If you're in the market for artisianal, hand-pulled art, today's your lucky day. Tom Huck and Evil Prints lit up the printmaker signal (it's a skull atop two crossed ink rollers) and summoned the nation's finest print artists to town for Printbangerz Ball 2, and the call has been answered... All prints are priced at $50 or less, which is a goddamn steal. " (PF)
