Thanks for the memories, Washington Avenue! You stay classy.
Time to shake things up a little bit, St. Louis. The RFT Music Showcase, our annual party celebrating the city's best and brightest musical talent, will be held this year in the thriving and vibrant Grove district of Manchester Avenue.

The event, which each year features over 50 St. Louis acts performing in a one-day span, has been held on Washington Avenue since 2010. Before that it took place in the Loop, for several years.

Now, after three years on Washington, we are heading west to the Grove. The 2014 RFT Music Showcase will be held in early June, as always. Here's to new years and new beginnings!

I enjoyed having it in my neighborhood on Washington Avenue.  Saw some great performances there.

When I was being robbed on Washington Ave after the RFT Showcase in 2011 I was thinking it might be time to relocate the event.

I didn't have any intention of going but I would be more likely to go the Grove than Washington. Then again the lack of parking in the Grove annoys me, so never mind.

The employees of Rue 13 had zero interest in dealing with the weirdo electronic folks playing there in 2012. They weren't hostile, but gave zero shits.
