Lounge Hard, Lounge Free

The Gateway Men’s Chorus goes retro


People throw around superlatives with reckless abandon these days. Every car dealership/sports bar/pork-steak sale is the "biggest," the "best," the one that's "truly unbeatable." But when it comes to descriptors like "timeless" and "classic," the field narrows considerably — and Vegas-style jazz definitely makes the cut. Join the Gateway Men's Chorus for Lounge Lizards, an evening full of hit songs made famous by Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Tom Jones and more. Superbly talented and always entertaining, the chorus takes the Edison Theatre stage (6445 Forsyth Boulevard, on the Washington University campus) at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 to $50 and can be purchased through MetroTix (314-534-1111 or You can also pay for your admission and find more information through the Gateway Men's Chorus' box office ( or 314-621-7286). And if you can't make the performance on Friday, June 20, there's a second show Saturday, June 21 — same swingin' time, same swingin' place.
