St. Louis Concert Calendar: July 25, 2007



Not too many new shows added this week. And the ones that are tend to lean toward the classic rock/old-school variety: Alice in Chains (unplugged), Peter Frampton, Loverboy and My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult. Gigs by Thor Axe, Dan Deacon, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Adam Franklin of Swervedriver, Nada Surf/Sea Wolf, Ted Leo, White Rabbits, the Valley Arena and Of Montreal add a bit of indie-rock soul. I'm pretty sure I forgot to add what people posted in comments last week, though. Apologies. I'm tired.
