"..when we get to get on stage and look people in their eyes and express our passion... for however long our set is; we take advantage of that anytime possible, even if it means taking two gigs in one night.. The people of St. Louis, all of us on the East Side and the surrounding areas are more important than most of them even know. Without them there is no US. Point blank." - RT-FaQ, 2.12.11.
If you are going to spend any cheddah on a bag of flaming hot cheetos or a rello (or some shitty chocolates), hold up on the artery cloggin' and purchase their single, On and On on iTunes. Celebrate this VeeDay by showing some positive love.
WATC will forever be my valentine.

What a sight! They had so many horn players, I thought they might have been a marching band! But there was something there. Even though they were a bit green, I saw that Rick Chudacoff, their bassist, and Ron Cooley, their guitarist, had potential. Leslie, who could sing in a beautiful falsetto, and his rougher-voiced counterpart Arno Lucas, really had me going. I agreed to take over as drummer for the band. Pretty soon I took over as bandleader. I helped turn those guys into a funk band. I wrote songs, arranged the horn section. When Leslie got drafted, I renamed the band L.A. Carnival.
Here is an interesting Mini-documentary from Egon and the results of his search for Lester Abrams.

I found an article that one of my professors wrote about Hyde Park in North St. Louis near downtown. Professor Burke made me appreciate and comprehend the importance of documenting the lifestyle of not only the people but as well as the life of the neighborhoods and buildings within them. At a glance, she is a small woman with a short boyish haircut, but when she speaks - you become amazed by her use of words and vast knowledge of relevant information.
Since you're going to be snowed in, you might as well take the time to read the article. It's worth it.
Flannery Burke - Hyde Park, St. Louis: Are We Almost There Yet?
Take some time out of your day to check this site out...its filled with amazing photos....this past weekend we got to get it in...and Andrew Wissman was out with us documenting...Wissman recently posted a sequence of Bobby Taylor and Ryan Brinkmann enjoying the good weather(click here to view the post)...also check out radone first online zine by( clicking here)...
A site dedicated to the historic architecture of St. Louis, Missouri - mourning the losses, celebrating the survivors.
POWER'S WAS NICE ENOUGH TO LINK US ON HIS SITE. LEARN MORE ABOUT STL...
Built St. Louis began as a way to document the destruction of the city's historic architecture. Spurred on by the 1996 demolition of the Ambassador Theater, and shocked that the Arcade, Syndicate Trust, and others were similarly threatened, I began photographing them and posting the photos online that fall. Over the years it's grown into a way for me to express both joy and outrage over changes in the cityscape.
