UPCOMING SHIT TO DO IN ST LOUIS DIY - OCT 4 - 8
TONIGHT! TUES, OCT 4 AT FLOATING LABS
STL - Container | Unicorn Hard-On | Laser Poodle | Moemlien
Jeremy Kannapell is proud to present an evening of solid electronics & minimal techno. Container is the new mini-house project of Ren Schofield. Known for his works with his label I Just Live Here and bands like Dynasty, Deep Jew, God Willing, Form-A-Log and JKAE, Schofield explores new sonic territory with this beat driven project. Unicorn Hard-On aka Val Martino returns to Mound City with her new approach to the long-lasting UH-O project. Adding vocals and a swarming patch of undulating beats, Martino steps up the game with this new evolving branch of hysteria. Amsterdam trollers Laser Poodle and Moemlien are on tour with Container/UH-O. Featuring hyper-hypnotaze rhythm and heavenly tones, Laser Poodle and Moemlien (respectively) up the ante for forward-thinking minimal techno.Side notes from Josh Levi and Larva Lu

WED, OCT 5 AT EL LENADOR
Stag Nite with Racketbox, Cowpuncher Jenny and The Flea Bitten Dawgs!
Racketbox is returning to Stag Nite cuz I was desperate and I asked my brother Mark to help me once again and he said “yes” like the dumbass he is.. I love that band and you will be subjected to me singing with them the 3 or 4 songs that can still fit in my head. They have been playing Stag Nites since 2003, check them out! Every song that they play is a new song, no covers ever, we swear by the grace of Facebook! Hear their new hit set “List Vaults by the Vans”!
Cowpuncher Jenny sings cowboy songs (all are public domain or original….), she usually plays a ukulele and has old Dub Kitchen kids backing her up. She is a real cowpuncher! She has wrestled more cows than I have ________ ______’s. (Match Game contest over there <, winner gets a plus one..)
Flea Bitten Dawgs is Dave and Thom from Racketbox playing ukes and looking real cool, they will be listed as openers, but prolly play throughout the nite their catalog of all songs that are brand new or 150 years old, beyond the copyright laws.

The Event’s Official Press Release
METROLINK FANS TO DON CORSAGES AND BOUTONNIERES FOR THE FOURTH ANNUAL METROLINK PROM
Citizens for Modern Transit, City Affair, and the Transit Riders Union of St. Louis Present Celebration of the MetroLink Blue Line
FEELING BLUE? AT METROLINK PROM, BLUE IS THE COLOR OF HAPPINESS!
Five years ago, St. Louis’s illustrious MetroLink light rail system took a great leap forward with a brand new line that connected St. Louisans for the first time by rail to exotic locales such as Maplewood, Richmond Heights and Shrewsbury. For the fourth time in as many years, St. Louisans will unite to dance aboard the the trains in the off-beat, one-of-a-kind MetroLink Prom. Why do we do this year after year? Because MetroLink—and public transit in general—makes St. Louis a better, more accessible city. Now, with the Blue Line in place, St. Louis can experience our resurgent, historic urban core as well as our thriving, inner ring suburbs in just seven light rail stops.
WHAT: 4th Annual MetroLink Prom
WHO: All lovers of mass transit and formalwear
WHEN: Friday, October 7, 2011 at 7 p.m.
WHERE: Meet at the Forest Park/DeBaliviere MetroLink Station at 7pm
HOW MUCH: A two-hour Metro pass ($2.75) – Purchase your own, please!
WHAT IS IT?
Just like it sounds – a full-blown, high school-style PROM aboard your favorite transit system. Dress in your finest attire—try to wear something blue—and meet us at the MetroLink Forest Park/DeBaliviere Station on Friday, October 7, 2011 at 7 p.m. We’ll direct you from there. When we arrive at Shrewsbury Station, we’ll award the night’s finest dressed (blue-themed formalwear or costumes) with the title of Prom King and Prom Queen before riding back to the Skinker Station.
The newly anointed Prom Court will then lead us in our promenade from the Skinker Station to the Moonrise Hotel’s rooftop bar for our Blue Moon Ball – a night of drinking and dancing with an unparalleled bird’s eye view of the city and its duo of MetroLink lines. (That’s a half mile parade to show off our finery to the general public. A drum line will lead the way!).

This year we’re celebrating the Blue Line. Born five years ago, in October 2006, the Blue Line connects us to exotic locales like Shrewsbury and more familiar ones like the Galleria!
To honor the Blue Line, try to wear something BLUE or blue-themed (Blues Brothers? Smurfs? Your favorite St. Louis Blues player? Your pick!).
We’ll ride and sing and dance and celebrate our wonderful transit system. Afterwards, we’re heading to the Moonrise Hotel’s rooftop for our “Blue Moon Ball” to continue the festivities!
