Landmarks Association of St. Louis presents Jesse Irwin, The Monads, and TheRed-Headed Strangers in concert to benefit the Alliance to Save Cleveland High on Friday, April 3rd. Doors open at 9pm at The Wedge, 442 Bates at Virginia. $7 cover. Located just off Grand Boulevard at 4352 Louisiana Avenue, Cleveland opened in 1915 and served the Dutchtown neighborhood for over ninety years before being shuttered by the St. Louis Public Schools in 2007. All proceeds from the show will go to the Alliance to support its efforts to reopen this invaluable neighborhood resource as a school once more. Landmarks is particularly excited to be holding this event at The Wedge, Carondelet's newest restaurant and music venue and part of the Grand-Bates Suburb Historic District which is headed for the National Register. Join us for a night of great music to support our city's historic architecture and the people and institutions which bring it alive!
Lastly, don't forget the Big Big Tour this Sunday! It's one giant urban open house, with properties splayed all across the city. Don't let the recession scare you away--it's a buyer's market, after all.
