The American Professionals

Friday, November 4; Hi-Pointe (1001 McCausland Avenue)


You can take the man out of St. Louis -- in this case, Nukes bassist Chuck Lindo, who now lives in LA -- but you can't take St. Louis out of the man. Need proof? What brings Lindo and his current band The American Professionals back to the Midwest is a high school reunion (Jennings High School, before you ask). Like his beloved former band, the Professionals specialize in tar-sticky hooks -- although their power-pop tendencies belie a fondness for geeky new-wave obscurities and the histrionic harmonies of Queen.

Doors open at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $6; call 314-781-4716 for more information.
