When the Bluebird opened this summer, we knew one of Saint Louis’ newest venues had something special but unidentifyable going for it. Sure we saw an ever expanding list of Saint Louis’ best connected bands and some national acts worth merit, but the large space seemed to merit other uses. You could see the band posters on the walls from shows exisiting before the venue, proud framed in the back espousing their prestigeous ambitions from local artists.
This week those framed pieces will be joined; the concert space will become in part on art gallery during Silia Silias. Featuring original artwork by 40 artists themed around the bluebird (the creature, not just the venue’s namesake), including one from Highway 61 reader Amy Van Donsel. Even if you’re not interested in attending the art premier there will be a show starting at 10pm featuring local musicians, like birds of feather Nite Owl.
It all starts this Wednesday night, Octopber 3rd around 8pm (with the show starting at 10), for a mere cover of $7. That’s a bottle of beer at most art galleries, though you won’t pay nearly as much at their bar. And while the flyer (see right) might look like a bookmark, we don’t anticipate a book reading so soon. Then again, we never knew this little venue would grow up so fast.
