(I promise, I'll update the concert calendar over there today or tomorrow. It's been a long few weeks.) Anyway, got word today that Lou favorite Headlights is one of the marquee out-of-towners playing this year's Play:stl music festival, which runs from September 18-20. The band plays on Thursday, September 18. Other notable touring bands include the Photo Atlas and Office (September 19, Cicero's), Jen Foster (9/19, Cicero's acoustic stage) and the French Kicks (Sepetember 20, Blueberry Hill's Duck Room). A $15 wristband gets you into the festival for three days.
My Brightest Diamond -- a.k.a. Shara Worden, who impressed as the opening act for the Decemberists last year with a mix of PJ Harvey ferocity and Cat Power delicacy -- is also playing Cicero's, on November 11. Her second album is called A Thousand Shark's Teeth.
