The Ten Best Things to do in St. Louis This Weekend: July 1-4


  • Daniel Boud

It is on nights like tonight when we most wish we were some kind of amorphous blob that could split six ways: Elvis Costello's at the Pageant, Eddie Vedder's packing his ukulele into the Fox, Fucked Up and JEFF the Brotherhood are going to kick ass at the Firebird, Clownvis is filming a show at Off Broadway and Sleepy Kitty is releasing its album at the Royale. Got all that? The Compton Heights Concert Band needs your help breaking the world kazoo record on Monday, and apparently there is something going on at the Arch.
