Recovered from last night's Wayne Coyne visit and Midwest Mayhem madness? Good, because there's plenty to come: Chicago's Ga'an is at Cranky Yellow tonight and Lord of the Yum Yum is in town tomorrow at the Way Out Club. Maybe they should carpool.

The Show-Me Burlesque Festival kicked off last night and goes through Sunday, and there are several tempting local lineups on Saturday. Tower of Power, with its famous horns, is playing a couple shows at the Casino, and Amelia White brings Nashville to Off Broadway with Sam Knutson on Sunday.
