1 It's at Off Broadway. Should be 'nuff said, but we'll explicate a titch bit: it's one of the best venues in town.
2 Meet the LouFest crew! Brian, Rich, Jeff, and Mike - four of the nicest guys in music festival planning history - will be on hand at Saturday's event. They've worked their asses off to bring our fair city the LouFest Musical Festival for a second year in a row, and Saturday would be the perfect time to thank them for investing their time and energy into Saint Louis.
3 Steve Leftridge of Pop Matters is the emcee. He flat out knows his music, and he's got a silky smooth voice to boot.
4 It's a high school fashion extravaganza! On the first night of the Battle of the Bands, there were more trends going on in the room than I had fingers and toes to count. Jorts. Flock of Seagulls haircuts. White skinny jeans. These kids know how to dress the part.
5 There will be some serious stage presence going on. Two Saturdays ago, Jason and I were blown away by the confidence that oozed from the youngins' onstage. We're talking talented-beyond-their-years readiness.
6 Adult beverages will be served. In some weird twist on a backwards prom or something, you can stand around and indulge in your favorite local brew while kiddos entertain you. My initial thought was that the bar would surely be closed while the bands played due to the raging amount of minors on the premises. But au contraire, mon frere. And, drink up, buttercup. (Just have a designated driver handy.)
