FRIDAY, DECEMBER 21 Kids w/ Dogtown Athletic Club, Dancer Prancer Vixen 9 p.m. El Lenador, 3124 Cherokee Street. $5. 314-875-9955. Kids' clean punk is played in the key of twee, banking on crisp bass riffs and a straightforward approach to recording. The trio's debut EP 7 Nation Army — or the Spotify-exclusive, Jack White-friendly version 8 Nation Army — is pitch-perfect in its minimalism and sideways sense of humor. Singer Julio Prato reprises a sarcastic splicing of spoken-word and singing once heard in Kenshiro's (and more recently, nebulosa) while Ani Kramer chimes in with an airy and straight-forward style. It's a tidy kind of punk kept afloat by drummer Colin Ferguson's buoyant beats. Both Dogtown Athletic … [Read more...] about The 5 Best Concerts in St. Louis This Weekend, December 21 to 23

St. Louis cultural institutions are on a roll right now. In the spring CAM welcomed a solo exhibition by Amy Sherald, who painted the official portrait for First Lady Michelle Obama. And now the Saint Louis Art Museum opens its specially-commissioned exhibit of portraits of black St. Louisans painted by Kehinde Wiley, who painted Barack Obama's Presidential portrait. And let's not forget ongoing exhibitions by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Sanford Biggers, William Downs (now at CAM), and the Pulitzer Art Foundation's double bill of work by Lola Alvarez Bravo and Ruth Asawa. But if singular moments in St. Louis' cultural history aren't your thing (something to work on, perhaps), the leading edge of the Halloween scythe approacheth and Snoop Dogg steps on to the stage to act at the Stifel Theatre. 1. … [Read more...] about The Best Things to Do in St. Louis This Week, October 19 to 24

BOE officials voted unanimously to raise the central bank’s policy rate to 0.75% from 0.5% following the rate-setting Monetary Policy Committee’s August meeting, the BOE said Thursday.

Lime, the company behind those ubiquitous highlighter-green rideshare bikes blanketing the St. Louis area since April, unceremoniously dumped a whole bunch of electric scooters onto the city's streets this past Friday, aiming to serve the St. Louisan who has places to be but is far too fat and out of shape to pedal anywhere. I am one such St. Louisan, and therefore I decided to take it upon myself to run extensive tests on the new rides, for the good of the people. Over the course of two rather temperate St. Louis days I managed to ride no less than eight of the little buggers, so as to have a large enough sample set for accurate scientific research. Here are my findings. click to enlarge DANIEL HILL Consider 7 a.m. the calm before the storm in terms of scooter-gathering. 1. Locating One Is a Fucking Bloodsport. For its launch, Lime brought 200 scooters to the St. Louis area. Since St. Louis … [Read more...] about 13 Things We Learned by Rigorously Testing St. Louis’ New Lime Scooters
