Info TK

By: Neil Feineman

I don't know anything about St. Louis's electronic music community. But I am willing to be educated. So if you do, feel free to fill us in.

After spending a bit of time reading up on it, though, I do know that St. Louis was the first place that slaves or free men stopped on the way north from Mississippi and Arkansas, and that St. Louis pretty much has given the world more than enough music to put us all in its debt. Just a random stroll through www.bluesworld.com is sufficient proof: This is a barebones website, with little more than a list of musicians who were part of the St. Louis cauldron.

Now, you can skim it because that's what we do these days, but indulge me. Actually read the names slow enough so that you can hear them. Listen close and you'll hear the sound of St. Louis:

Fontella Bass ("Rescue Me"), Albert King, James Ingram. Little Milton. Lonnie G. and the Blue Flames, "Guitar" Tommy Moore and the 5 J's, Johnny the Twist Williams, Ann Peebles ("I Can't Stand the Rain), Bessie Smith, Ike Turner, Tina Turner, Josephine Baker, Lester Bowie, Scott Joplin, Bobby McFerrin, Jesse Stone and the Bootblacks, Miles Davis, Cleophus Robinson, Willie Mae Ford Smith.

To those and to those we missed, thank you.

Travel Tips


St. Louis has more to it than music. First there's the Arch, the 630-foot stainless steel sculpture by Eero Saarinen. Then there's Forest Park, a 1300 acre park on the site of the 1904 World's Fair. (If you're a friend of Rufus, you'll recognize it from the Judy Garland musical, Meet Me in St. Louis.) There's Anheuser-Busch Brewery, the largest in the world, with a tour that includes free samples. And, finally, there's something called the Concrete, a frozen custard dessert so thick that you can turn it upside down without it spilling. According to Road Trip USA, a prodigious book by Jamie Jensen, you can find that at Ted Drewe's at 6726 Chippewa Ave. And now that dinner's no longer a problem...
