Before LouFest Party

8 p.m. Friday, August 26. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue.

Old Lights, Jon Hardy & the Public and Troubadour Dali are all three unquestionably among the cream of the St. Louis music crop, and all three are somewhat selective when it comes to playing shows. Count your blessings, then, that you can see them all in one place for the low, low price of free.
