Billiken Club at Saint Louis University - Busch Student Center Slideshow Image

Over the past few years, the Billiken Club on the campus of Saint Louis University has hosted some of the most sought after and critically-acclaimed indie rock acts, while giving local and regional performers a chance to open for national headliners. Though it doubles as a taco bar and cafeteria by day, a black drape cordons off the performance space from its unusual surroundings. All shows at the Billiken Club are free, and the performers are booked by the university committee, so there's a wide variety of student-sanctioned talent, which makes it a go-to spot for budget-friendly, very now music. It's a hipster mecca, despite the fact that they don't sell any liquor or PBR, just those brews that come with Schlafly or Anheuser-Busch/Inbev logos.
