Obviously I’m not going to write about this show for money since two members of the band have released my music – that’s too much of a conflict of interest even for the world of music criticism. Just take my advice that this is a show worth attending, OK?
Just found out that the Seattle band Patience Please is playing Lemmon’s in St. Louis on Saturday, August 5. Patience Please includes two old friends of mine from Seattle: drummer Chris Mac, whom you all know from Indiepages and many other projects, and singer/keyboardist Keenan Dowers, whom I met through volunteering at the Vera Project. Perhaps they will bring a little of Seattle’s cool summer weather to a hot St. Louis August.
