Just a quick word for all those in the St. Louis area. Homegrown and local faves Rusty Nail are having an event on Saturday, November 10th at PBC Studios in Bethalto, IL. More information can be found here. So if you live in the St. Louis area, hop over to the other side of the river and catch a great show or if you happen to be driving through, stop in and take a listen!
So far this year has included some great shows but my discovery and writing about them has been reactive instead of proactive. One of the missions for my blog is to help the local Celtic Punk and Rock scene. In thinking about it, my reactive response has been great at telling people about what they missed, not what they can get out and enjoy. I plan on trying to be more proactive and will start to post about upcoming shows periodically.
To get the ball rolling, here are a few shows I am aware of:
Rusty Nail – the hometown favorite:
2/18 at the The Shamrock Pub following the Mardi Gras parade
3/10 at The Heavy Anchor
Red Rebel County – hailing from Chicago and called a premier Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly cover band:
3/09 at The Dubliner
The Mighty Regis – nationally touring from Los Angeles:
3/28 location yet to be announced.
So I am putting a call out to bands and fans to give me a shout when you know you are coming to the gateway city so I can help get the word out beforehand at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and slainte!
