Greetings, St. Louis music fans! You'll notice that this post has undergone a format change. Rather than recommending only one show per night of the week, as we have done in the past, we thought it would be better to provide a near-complete listing of all the week's notable shows. This way you can plan your week of music according to your own tastes.

You'll notice we said "near complete." That is because these listings are handled by one solitary man. Oversights are inevitable but unintentional. Please let us know in the comments if we missed anything important! Happy hunting.
