The Ten Best Shows in St. Louis This Weekend: September 20 to September 22

Life in Color - Rebirth Tour
w/ Dirty South, Borgone, Basscrooks
@ Old Rock House
7 p.m. | $42/$47
Life in Color proclaims itself the largest paint party in the world. What does that mean exactly? This trailer shows us how it's done. Attendees: get ready to get wet and dance in dayglo. (MS)

Ben Sollee
w/ Matt Duncan
@ The Gramophone
9 p.m. | $12
Its a shame this show couldn't be combined with the Bela Fleck/Abigail Washburn show from Friday, as that would put 3/4 of the members of the Sparrow Quartet under one roof. As it stands, you'll just have to make sure to hit both. (DH)

Benefit for Kim Massie
w/ Denise Thimes, Eric "Guitar" Davis, Anita Jackson, Roland Johnson, Cheryl Brown, Adrienne Felton
@ The Sheldon
5 p.m. | $15
An all-star cast of jazz, blues and soul musicians from St. Louis and beyond assemble to raise funds to benefit local blues diva Kim Massie as she recovers from a major medical surgery. (MS)

Benefit for Mon Rai
w/ Matt Harnish's Pink Guitar, Breakmouth Annie, Fumer, 3 of 5, Cole Adams
@ Lemmons
6 p.m. | $5
Read Mon Rai's tragic story via Daily RFT, and chip in to raise money for his wife and children by checking out this great local line-up. (MS)

On an On
w/ The Sun and the Sea, Samuel Fickie
@ The Firebird
8:30 p.m. | $10-$14
Chicago's On An On returns to St. Louis after a recent showing. This band is definitely on the rise right now; be sure to catch 'em in a venue as intimate as the Firebird while you still can. (DH)

Looking for something else? Billy Bragg is also in town on Sunday night.

Note: Though we wish we could, we can't feature every great show happening in town in just one measly post. Peruse the St. Louis concert calendar for more ideas any time.
