Van Dyke Parks is coming to the Luminary Center for the Arts (4900 Reber Place, 314-807-5984)! It's part of the venue's Elevator Music Series, where the audience is seated in the gallery space, and there are only 250 tickets. They're $22 each and on sale now.
We can find a record of when the legendary composer last played St. Louis -- has he? It certainly wouldn't be the first time the Luminary has brought an artist to this city for the first time. This is wonderful news regardless -- Van Dyke Parks' track record stands pretty much unparalleled, with credits on albums ranging from Smile to Ys. And that is to say nothing of his solo career, which to date has included six proper full-lengths.
