Excuses, Excuses November 07, 2007 | 06:34 PM I'll be the first to admit that I've been a bit of a bloggin' slacker this season. The past few weeks have been especially rough, as my truck gave up the ghost and I've been relegated to taking the bus to and from work. That means I left the house at 7 am and returned sometimes around 6 pm (on a good day). The bus makes me motion sick, so I was in no ...

Tonight @ the Jazz Estate - 9:30 p.m.

Drawing frequent comparisons to Medeski, Martin and Wood, St. Louis’ Teddy Presberg comfortably infuses jazz guitar jams with routine funk refrains.

After modest beginnings as a blues festival, the free event has grown each year, offering more food vendors, more street performers, more visual artists, more activities and demonstrations for young children and more music.

Tonight @ Cathedral Square - 6:30 p.m.

The Pamela Means Jazz Project headlines Jazz in the Park at Cathedral Square tonight at 6:30 p.m. As the name of her band suggests, jazz isn’t first nature to singer-guitarist Pamela Means, who is better known for saucy, politicized anti-folk in the spirit of Ani DiFranco, but with her Jazz Project, Means attempts . . .
