As we speak, the drunken Santas of SantaCon LFK are poised to begin their journeys at the Sandbar. And Frank's North Star is preparing for a circus (how in hell they're getting an elephant in and out of that basement is a mystery). But we've told you of these things already. So here are two more weekend events to consider:
1) After a a few days of soul-crushing news out of Connecticut, treat yourself to a few hours of twee happiness and soaring pop at the Replay tonight with St. Louis' Palace and our local friends in La Guerre and Hospital Ships.
Palace's FB page bio says they "sound like your childhood," and the first line of the first song we clicked on kicks off with some "oohhs" and "aaahhhs" and the line ""I remember playin' in your sandbox." We liked them immediately. Check out some tunes at their FB page here.
Here's the band with cartoon animals on their shoulders.
The event also has the coolest flyers of the week.
(2) Are you looking for a quirky X-mas event that doesn't involve Ugly Sweater contests? Venture over to the Gaslight on Sunday evening and catch Brian Hawkins performing some ragtime favorites with a backdrop of Jimmy Stewart films on the television and (we think) a Jimmy Stewart impression contest. Visit the FB event page here . The party runs from 6:00-9:00, so you can still be home in time to live-tweet the Homeland season finale, which is sure to be fucking ludicrous!
