1900 Park Creative Space in St. Louis is offering something different on Valentines Day, a concert which celebrates the flip side of love…songs both sardonic and sad, saucy and sorrowful, a Black Heart Valentines Day Celebration. The headliner of this event is Florida singer-songwriter Grant Peeples, who likes to describe the show as “songs of murder, wanton, lust, and revenge. Sassy, but not sappy…,” he says with a grin. “It’s all in fun,” he comments. “We’ve done these shows all over my home state of Florida. We’re encouraging concert goers to dress for the occasion- black with red trim, and dead flower corsages and boutonnieres. There’ll be plenty of activities for the moon struck lovers, but what about the not-so-lucky in love? We’ve got something for them, or anybody looking for something different on Valentine’s Day.”
Suzie's birthday is 1/5, so we'll be celebrating it at her monthly show at Venice Cafe. The bands are, in no particular order: Suzie Cue & friends, Benny Fowler, and Ellen the Felon Ages 21+. $5 cover. Doors at 9, music at 9:30. Venice is a cash-only bar. ATM available.
