    First Thursdays every month, join Suzie Cue and friends at the Venice Cafe for 3 Bands For 3 Bucks. Ashley Batiste: One of the best folk singers this town's got; one listen and you'll have fallen in love with this girl (or at least her voice). Suzie Cue: Normally joined by her band, The Terrible 2s, this will be a rare solo set for STL's own bluesy, bitch-folk singer/songwriter. The Big Idea: A modern folk-rock group from Cape Girardeau, MO. We're excited to finally have them at the Venice! Doors at 9; show at 9:30. $3 cover. Ages 21+. Venice Cafe is a cash-only bar; ATM available.
