The Ten Best Shows in St. Louis This Weekend: December 6 to 8

Sunday (December 8):

Aaron Lee Tasjan
w/ Joe Fletcher, La Guerra
@ Off Broadway
7:30 p.m. | $10-$13
ALT's latest, The Thinking Man's Filth, opens up with a song called "Junk Food and Drugs." Intrigued, I continued listening (uh, not that I approve of either of those things officially. I am a serious professional, or something). By the time I got to the second song, "Everything That I Have is Broken," I was pretty sure I found a soul mate. Listen for yourself here. (DH)

Benefit for Charles Hunt
w/ Ground Floor Band, Kim Massie, Bottoms Up Blues Gang, Roland Johnson, Marty Abdullah, Wendy Gordon, Fred Walker
@ BB's Jazz, Blues & Soups
3 p.m. | $10
Several respected St. Louis musicians band together to help a friend, who recently had heart surgery and an extended hospital stay. Gotta love a good cause! (DH)

Chanel West Coast
w/ Allen Gates & TrevHype
@ Old Rock House
8 p.m. | $15-$40
you may know her from MTV's Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory and Ridiculousness. Or maybe from her mixtape, July's Now You Know. Either way, you'd do well to check out Young Money's latest signee. (DH)

Eat Drink Listen Finale
w/ Trio TBD, Downstereo, Holy Sheboygan
@ 2720 Cherokee
8 p.m. | $7
The "Eat. Drink. Listen." festival takes place all weekend, featuring collaborations between restaurants and bars with music and video artists. Grab a weekend pass to check out multiple events or head to the finale to see what it's all about. Check out the full schedule of events, featuring everything from brass music at Blank Space to jazz at 4 Hands Brewery, on the official festival website. (MS)

Expire
w/ Take Offense, Bent Life, Cross Me, Out of Time
@ The Demo
7:30 p.m. | $12
Bridge Nine hardcore! If you know what those words mean, you probably know what this band sounds like. If not, think big, pummeling breakdowns interspersed with fast punk beats and shouted vocals. Lead singer sounds like the guy from Left For Dead too, which is never a bad thing. (DH)

For another great option, consider catching Chance the Rapper at the Pageant.

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. Let everyone know what else you're looking forward to seeing this weekend in the comments below, and send show tips to clubs@riverfronttimes.com to be considered for inclusion on these lists.
