The Ten Best Shows in St. Louis This Weekend: January 10 to 12

Cameron Wittig
The Bad Plus wraps up its tail of holiday season shows at Jazz at the Bistro this weekend. For more on these punk princes of jazz, check out a feature from last year.
Guess what? RFT Music has a fever, and the only prescription is more concerts. OK, but seriously, I'm in bed in between a series of psychedelic fever dreams and just OD'ed on some flu meds, so we'll keep this short. I want to be well enough in time to make it to some of these shows, after all. See what's in store after the jump.

Highway Heat CD Release

9 p.m. | $10-$13
A little bit of heat sounds nice after all of that damned snow, eh? Pick up the local group's latest CD while you are warming your frostbitten hands. (DH)
