The Tennis Lesson Takes on Experimental Indie Rock

Mark Cange, guitarist and vocalist of the Tennis Lesson:

I make music because...what else would we do?

I've learned the most from...our talented friends.

I'm most inspired by...a plan coming together.

Some of my favorite local bands/artists the risk of excluding any of our friends, let's say Scott Joplin, Chuck Berry, Miles Davis, Ike and Tina Turner, and Dave Weckl.

The best post-show food in St. Louis the Taproom.

Editor's Note: He means the Schlafly Tap Room (2100 Locust Street; 314-241-2337).

What I like most about St. Louis's inexpensive, and Tower Grove Park.

The St. Louis music scene could use...more venues with a public-address system, and a Drum Headquarters.
