August 25th and The Lot (plus a pre-party)

poster for the lot festival, august 25thMark your social calendars now (if you haven’t already): August 25th is bound to become the busiest weekend of your year.  Between international festivals, bike rides/flash mob, and the glorious return of the Webster Film Series, you probably would have trouble dropping existing commitments.  Fortunately for us @ Highway 61, the choice has been made exceedingly simple – we’ll be helping Bill Streeter make documentary video of The Lot.

If you haven’t heard about The Lot already, you will soon from your favorite bands (or at least in a note slipped in recent Schlafly 6-pack deliveries).  This 9th annual, one-day festival promises to deliver the best in local music in less than 24 hours.  And for FREE.  We’ll trust that you can find out for yourself all the reasons you’ll want to make plans to attend the show, although we’ll mention a few of our faves: Jumbling Towers, 7 shot screamers, and belly dancing.  But we’re obligated to mention (for calendar marking purposes) that the show will take place in the parking lot of the Schlafly Tap Room on 21st & Locust from 5:00 pm-1:30 am on August 25th.

And if for some reason you are unable to attend the Lot (or are just as impatient as us), you can attend a preview/pre-party this Wednesday August 15th.  Taking place in the Lucas School House on 1200 Allen Ave. between 8 pm and midnight, this set will include local band favorites Sex Robots, Upright Animals, and Grand Beauty, for a cover of $5 that includes a specialty drink.  Of course that free drink means the show will be 21+, but don’t let that get in the way of helping support the free show taking place 10 days later.  We suspect that if you’ve read this far, we’ll see you there, but if now you can’t say we didn’t tell you so.
