Happy Holidays! Sorry for the notable absence of updates. Let’s play an old favorite game: Good News, Bad News, or No News.

Good News:
Our old freinds (aka the young ones) in Tomko Bomb Co. will be plyaing two nights of back to back local goodness this weekend on Off Broadway. Friday night – The Bureau, The Hibernauts, Witch’s Hat (of Columbia, MO actually), and of course The Makeshift Gentlemen. Saturday night – So Many Dynamos, Gentleman Auction House, Light Pollution (of Dekalb, IL actually), and also Laite. With a show by Videology. 52nd city has a few more details for those interested. See you there.

Bad News:
Remember that rumor about Streetside Records closing this year? Scrooge is locking the doors after December 24th. Turns out this loop mainstay is in limbo as much as Crestwood Mall (a ghost town these days). Share your memories of the Loop’s original record store on Playback STL (yes, they’re compiling memories).

No News: It’s the last weekend to see “The Santaland Diaries”, the David Sedaris Xmas classic, as brought to life by the Stray Dog theater. Beware the hidden 2pm matine showing this Saturday, December 22nd. The Vital Voice has a preview for those who are interested.

  1. Aw, that’s sad to see Streetside go.
