El Monstero starts a sold-out series of holiday shows this Friday at The Pageant.

Touring acts tend to travel less this time of year but St. Louis has no shortage of shows. Thank the tireless efforts of acts like Mark Dew and the Soulard Blues Band for holding it down week after week. Fans of rock should keep an eye on the legendary Sebastian Bach or the one-two punch of Tilts and Bug Chaser at the Firebird. Treat yourself to a show or two before the hectic holidays and, as always, leave a comment below and let us know what you're looking forward to.

Bob Seger brings his Silver Bullet Band to the Scottrade Center this Saturday.

Country fans might be catching their collective breath after four days of Garth, but Chris Isaak is coming to town and let's face it, the guy was (and probably still is) the soundtrack to many lost v-cards. Even if you see his ill-fated show on HBO as a massive misstep, it's hard to deny the man's smooth showmanship. Chicago's Bitchin Bajas and legendary pop-punk outfit Lagwagon are just a few highlights for the week ahead. Read on and stay clued in to the best concerts happening around town.

Story of the Year returns to St. Louis this Friday, December 5.

Although Garth Brooks has four concerts planned at the Scottrade Center this week, fans should wait with bated breath. The larger than life country star just canceled his recent appearance on the Tonight Show -- he said it "seemed distasteful" in light of recent events in Ferguson. Regardless, there's always something to do every night of the week in St. Louis. Read on for just a few highlights in the coming week, and if you don't see a show you think other readers might want to know about, share it in the comments below.

Rusko performs at the Old Rock House this Saturday.

Local reunions are the "in" thing right now, and Thanksgiving week doesn't disappoint. The Stag Nite All Stars will return this Wednesday to pay tribute to the Band - a fitting concert for Thanksgiving eve (otherwise known as the "drunkest night of the year"). If you're not glued to the couch via food coma on Thursday, Fragile Porcelain Mice play their pulverizing rock at Pop's. And, as usual, the whole weekend is jammed packed with plenty of choices for music lovers. Choosing between Ha Ha Tonka and Jay Farrar on Friday will be a bummer for some - but that's not a bad problem to have.

Kentucky Knife Fight plays its final show this Saturday at Off Broadway.

Don't let snowfall ruin your good time. This city has a tendency to panic every time a flake hits the ground, but fret not, the road is still here for those brave enough to venture out for good music. Shaggy and the Urge are just a few highlights for the week ahead, but we want to make a special recommendation for Kentucky Knife Fight's final performance on Saturday at Off Broadway -- this is your last chance to catch one of St. Louis' most underrated bands.

Dope Body plays Plush this Sunday with Roomrunner and more.

Ten days into November, and I haven't seen a single mention (or picture) of "No Shave November." Wonderful -- I'm really glad we, as a culture, were able to resist ingesting the same meme year after year. Really, you could sub the word "shave" for anything else. Let's see you try "No Pants November" in this cold. I have a better idea: Let's go out, every night. Like the cheesy name of this column, I challenge you to not miss a single show on this list. You'll have to show hop on Friday and Saturday, but you'll be able to brag about your worldly, diverse tastes.
