Scenester’s Work Week

September 12, 2007 at 3:49 pm | Posted in Events, Matthew Hurst | 1 Comment

The moment of rejoice is at hand for those who like to spend time in social settings!  If scenesters are looking for events they might actually enjoy taking part in besides the social recognition of their exploits, there are any number of ongoings this weekend that would gladly occupy the time of even the casual hipster.  And for everyone else, it’s just going to be a fun weekend.  Here are a few highlights:

  • All the popular kids will be at the Atomic Cowboy tonight, September 12th to attend worship services of Th’ Legendary Shack Shakers.  Or at least the STL blogeratti will be there from the look of the guest list online, who apparently dig this blues-rooted trashy goth rock (or some permutation like that).
  • Why try to be hip when you can just buy your indie-cred this week? reports that STL Collector of Revenue Gregory Daly will host a jazz-themed fundraiser tonight at Steinberg Rink in Forest Park.  At each donation level the contributor earns a new status in the social hierarchy, starting with Hipster, Daddy-O, Cool Cat, and even 18 karat.  No word yet on what level of donation includes a tote bag gift
  • Balloon Glow.  Forest Park. Friday.  Just because.
  • Bloc Party is only 2 years removed from being at the pinnacle of indie-rock’s then obsession.  Wouldn’t that make it ironic to see them this Friday night @ The Pageant?  We’re not sure, but it will impress your favorite rock critic @ at least.
  • Invite your sweetie to the Hop in the City this Saturday September 15th, but make sure she’s of age first since there will be plenty of beer tasting (albeit without PBR).  Instead raise a glass of Schlafly pumpkin beer (probably the closest thing to liquid pumpkin pie ever) and dozens of other varieties at the Schlafly Tap Room.  Scenesters will be seen stumbling, not sure exactly who is seeing them.
  • Be an OB (Original Beatnik) this Sunday September 18th @ the Royale, where you can Get Born Reading.  There you can *ahem* keep warm in your short pants, and maybe find romance, in the same sort of setting Bob Dylan rose from his Subteranean Homesick Blues; listening to readings from some of Saint Louis’ finest poets.  Look at kids, they keep it all hid; in this case hidden in the mire of metaphor and written word.

We hope to get past the bouncers since I’m not nearly as hip as I wish I were; until then we’ll list our future disapointments for the kids on our Upcoming page (including a few not listed here).
