The epitome of the cult classic is back! This weekend, the Tivoli Theatre will be showing “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” at midnight on Friday and Saturday night, Nov. 2 and 3. The film, a unique musical starring Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon, spoofs Hollywood horror and science fiction flicks. Its quirky style and catchy songs have helped it develop its cult status.
Ernest Greene is the epitome of the 21st century do-it-yourself electronic artist. After graduating from the University of South Carolina armed with a degree in library sciences, Greene (shockingly) had trouble finding a job and was forced to move back in with his parents.

Kiwi sensations The Naked And Famous will be playing tonight in the Gargoyle. They’re the most prominent band out of New Zealand since Flight of the Conchords. The Naked And Famous formed in 2008 with original band members Thom Powers (vocals and guitar) and Alisa Xayalith (vocals and keys), along with producer Aaron Short.
Radiohead is one of the last great rock bands to break the mainstream barrier, which unfortunately means that it is also one of the last great rock bands to have expensive concert tickets.

Don’t want to be an American idiot? You might be if you miss out on this weekend’s performances of the Green Day musical at the Peabody Opera House. “American Idiot” opened on Broadway in April 2010 and stayed running for almost a year. It has been touring the country since the beginning of 2012, and its time in St. Louis is here.

When those of us without cars venture into the greater St. Louis area, it is usually with a destination in mind. This unfortunately means that many don’t get to experience the life of the St. Louis local, especially the local music scene.
