Tomorrow! Vintage Vinyl In-Stores from Cavo, the Bottle Rockets


It's been quite a good few months for St. Louis bands in terms of national exposure. First, in June, So Many Dynamos released The Loud Wars on Vagrant Records. A few weeks later, Son Volt's Rounder Records debut, American Central Dust, hit stores. And now tomorrow finds the national release of two excellent new albums from local acts: Lean Forward from twangy mainstays the Bottle Rockets, and rock vets Cavo's Reprise Records bow, Bright Nights Dark Days.

To celebrate the national love, Cavo will be performing and signing autographs at Vintage Vinyl at 4 p.m., a few hours before it plays the second stage at Crue Fest. And for good measure, the Bottle Rockets will be there performing at 7:30 p.m. (Beer and prizes included at the latter gig.) Both posters by Jim Harper.
