The 2012 RFT Music Showcase is two weeks away, on June 2. And here it is: 5 blocks, 14 stages, 79 bands and artists. Ten bucks gets you all the excellent St. Louis music you can absorb in one twelve hour span. And hey: At least for now, the forecast calls for an incredibly pleasant high of 89 degrees, which is an improvement over last year, when the high was more like 1 million degrees. (Knocks on wood). Salivate over the full schedule, below.
