This may be an obvious suggestion, but be sure to use Myspace (or something similar) if all else fails and you have the inclination to sample some of the bands. For me, Myspace is one the best thing to happen to music in years. I use it sample a ton of amateur and professional bands/musicians.

I saw the Bottom Up a couple yeas ago and loved them. Don't know why I never saw them again. If I make it to see anyone it will be them.

I just re-thought the idea of Saturday. Mizzou/Illini @ the Dome. 70,000 tailgaters in the area. Parking on Landing $15-$20. I'm too old for all that!

Also on Saturday, Brian Curran is really talented. He plays by himself, acoustic delta blues.

Stay for Kim Massie Saturday night. You won't be dissapointed. Best act in St. Louis.

i swear, im not a homo, i drink busch.

it was tight. put a 12 into the backpack with a bunch of coolpacks and listened to some badass music this evenin. much fun was had. goin next year for sure. almost no security, walked in with a 12 the fist day in a baby bag (had a little kid, not small enough for a baby bag, but you know, good cover, he could pass for diapers) and went in the second day with an obvious cooler cause i saw mofos walkin round w/ coolers the first day. all in all, good deals except for those damn missouri and illini fans cloging the blues fest.

oh yea, the music was pretty stellar too...
