Still Be Around: A Tribute to Uncle Tupelo

8 p.m. Saturday, December 4. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue.



One could say that KDHX's latest theme night, Still Be Around: A Tribute to Uncle Tupelo, is unnecessary. After all, it's difficult to find a night in town when local bands aren't somehow paying homage to the alt-country pioneers, whether in spirit or in practice. But twenty years ago, both before and after the release of its landmark LP, No Depression, Jeff Tweedy, Jay Farrar and Mike Heidorn played several shows at Off Broadway. To mark that occasion, artists such as Grace Basement, the Dive Poets, Melody Den, the Trophy Mules and Bob Reuter will be playing the ragged, searing sucker punches that put the St. Louis music community on the map.
