The Ten Best Concerts in St. Louis This Weekend: June 6 to 8

Saturday (June 7):

The Memories
w/ Gigantic, Animal Teeth, Tubby Tom, Kenshiro's
@ Melt
8:30 p.m. | $6
This stacked bill features two out-of-towners: dreamy pop group The Memories from Portland and garage-rockers Gigantic from Springfield, Missouri. Click the links to sample some tracks. (MS)

w/ Don Felder, Foreigner
@ Verizon Wireless Ampitheater
7 p.m. | $24-$624
Styx's relationship with original singer Dennis DeYoung remains as strained as ever, with the band recently omitting his name altogether from the "history" section of its website, despite including other past members' names. Regardless, his replacement Lawrence Gowan has been doing a serviceable job for the last fifteen years. Expect a spectacle. (DH)

Vetter Kids
w/ Con Trails
9 p.m. | $5
Vetter Kids come to town from San Antonio and sound like the '90s, done today. If pop-infused grunge-rock sounds like your stuff, check it out. (MS)

For more options, Magic City plays a free show at the Schlafly Tap Room on Saturday. And, of course, the RFT Music Showcase takes over the Grove with a day full of around 90 bands.

Sunday (June 8):

Anthony David

For another good cause to support this weekend, check out the Third Annual Even Chance Pit Bull Benefit featuring five local bands and more at the Crack Fox.
