St. Louis, there is a light at the end of the snow tunnel -- at least judging by the recent rash of awesome show announcements. In fact, within the hour the Firebird announced that the Raveonettes will be playing at the venue on Friday, April 8. Tamaryn is opening. Tickets are $15 and are on sale Friday at noon. The Raveonettes hasn't played in St. Louis in the time I've lived here (since June 2005); when's the last time they were here?
Here's one of the group's underrated songs, "You Say You Lie," from the equally underrated Pretty in Black album.
