Summer 1996 Parades, Games, Music, Festivals, Circus


Summertime ... and the livin' is busy.

Especially if you're inclined to take in even a fraction of the dozens of concerts, festivals and other activities going on in St. Louis this summer.

GET OUT gets things started on Saturday with its free Birthday Bash at Union Station and Laclede's Landing, featuring Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, the BoDeans, the Spin Doctors and Dick Dale, along with local bands and other events. You can read more about that elsewhere in this issue.

And you really will find something for just about everyone listed in this special section. You know about the biggies--Fair St. Louis, the Strassenfest, Gypsy Caravan, etc.--but don't miss those less-attention-grabbing affairs.

If somehow you've never managed to catch the Compton Heights Concert Band, this is a good summer to begin. The band is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a list of guest artists that includes Buckwheat Zydeco, the Andean band Sukay, the Nuclear Whales Saxophone Orchestra and jazz trumpter Arturo Sandoval--all free.

There are literally hundreds of other free concerts scheduled, and we particularly direct your attention to the several series at Union Station, especially the Riverfront Times' "Rhythm & Roots" concerts, including the likes of Joe Ely, BeauSoleil, the subdudes, Little Milton and Marcia Ball.

And there are lots and lots of events this summer that we didn't have room to include. Check out the GET OUT listings every Thursday to find out about them. If you've got an event you'd like us to include, drop us a line ... or a fax--but remember to get them to us by the Thursday before publication.
