St. Louis Events Calendar > February 2007

Friday, February 9 and Saturday, February 10
Concert: Jeanne Trevor
Jazz at the Bistro, 3536 Washington Ave.
$15, 8:30 and 10:15 p.m. each night, 314-289-4030,

Come see why, now and then, she's been known as the "First Lady of St. Louis jazz": that's hometown songbird Jeanne Trevor, a staple here since her sensational residence in Gaslight Square's storied clubs. Her vocal influences include Billie Holiday, Nancy Wilson and Ella Fitzgerald, but the warmth and humor are all Jeanne. Jazz at the Bistro should provide a fantastic, intimate setting for these shows, and this is a bargain price for the company of a living local legend.

Green Drinks
Sage Homebuilders' display home, 1303 Childress in Dogtown
$3, all ages, 6-9 p.m., 314-265-6143,

Surely these things will get less novel as time goes on (right, St. Louis? Don't make me ashamed), but for now, you can get an up-close and personal tour of one of the area's first residential buildings to be certified green under the National Association of Home Builders' Green Build Initiative. It's the setting for this month's Green Drinks program, a place for eco-minded folks to mingle and learn about earth-friendly stuff in the Lou.

(Got a spare $420K burning a hole in your pocket? Check the floor plan here and you could be one of the first to occupy one of the first green residences!)

It's all a good preparation for the NAHB conference on the topic that rolls into town later this spring. If nothing else, you'll want some talking points for the home builders you run into at downtown bars in late March.

Film: "The Grace Lee Project"
Winifred Moore Auditorium at Webster Univ., 470 E. Lockwood Ave.
$6, 7 p.m., 314-968-7487,

It could be like the Korean, female equivalent of "John Smith," a name so common that everyone knows one...but little Grace Lee of Columbia, MO, didn't know that until she grew up and left the Midwest. Then, encountering the "I know another Grace Lee!" thing so often, she started to wonder about these Grace Lee doppelgangers. Who were they? Where they quiet, nerdy piano players? Could one of them be a potential high-school arsonist? Lee found all that and more when she set out to make this documentary, and she'll be on hand tonight for a post-film Q&A.
