St. Louis Concert Calendar: September 18, 2007



So, I've given up any idea that I'm going to be able to do this weekly. But I'll try to do this twice a month.

Behold, the big-huge-honking show calendar. You know the drill. I know I'm missing a bunch of Halloween goings-on, so chime in. (Sorry, Rev, I know I don't have the date of the Twangbang off-hand...)
