Slow week for announcements, but there are some gems up in here: Remember the '90s? Yeah, they like, weren't that long ago, and just when we thought we were nearing the end of this otiose, pervasive nostalgia, Lumiere Place comes to the rescue with October shows from Better Than Ezra and the Gin Blossoms. By Gandalf, their respective contributions ("Hey Jealousy!" "Desperately Wanting!") to the larger canon of American music will not be forgotten! Oh yeah, and Sugar Ray will be performing in downtown St. Louis to close out the Rock and Roll Marathon on October 23, because nothing says "rock n' roll" like Mark McGrath. Crooner John Prine comes to the Touhill on December 3.

Those looking forward to the electronic noodling of LA's Baths will be all sad panda at this--the September 30 show at the Gargoyle was cancelled earlier this week. No word yet if it'll be rescheduled.
