Exclusive: View the Lineup for the Lot, Saturday, August 23 at the Schlafly Tap Room



The free outdoor music festival The LOT, which is held annually at the Schlafly Tap Room, is always full of good times.

This year's model should be no different, even though it takes place the same day as Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's just-announced show. And if you're chagrined about a conflict between the two events, never fear: The LOT starts at 4 p.m. and goes all the way until 1:30 a.m., leaving you plenty of time to pre-game, go see the Boss and then come back for a celebratory nightcap.

Besides street performers, food (a definite plus this year, since last year the only non-alcoholic sustenance outside was Sno-Cones), DJs, art, guest emcees and (of course) the usual Schlafly Beer and booths manned by local business and non-profits, the LOT's marquee attraction is the music. So without further ado, the local bands performing are:

So Many Dynamos The Feed The Monads Alvin Jett and the Phat Noiz Blues Band Earthworms The Funky Butt Brass Band LOGOS Victoria
