St. Louis Events Calendar > March 2007

Saturday, March 3
Concert: Erin Bode
Saint Louis Art Museum, One Fine Arts Dr. in Forest Park
Free (cash bar), all ages, 6-8 p.m., 314-721-0072,

Yes, we know: she's the Next Next Thing, she's gonna put the Lou on the map for something besides beef between Nelly and Chingy, etc. Peel away all the hype, however deserved it may be, and just treat yourself to an evening of pure, unadulterated entertainment from the hometown songstress whose crystal-clear voice enlivens everything from jazz and pop covers to beautiful original songs. If you're into flowers, you can also wander the galleries and enjoy the arrangements of the annual Art in Bloom festival.

Great American Meatout 2007
First Congregational Church, 6501 Wydown
$15 advance/$20 door, all ages, seatings at 5 and 6:30 p.m., 314-995-2699,

Step away from the meat, partner, and discover a whole new world of delicious, healthful, less-resource-intensive foods when you embrace the vegetarian (or vegan, if you're feeling plucky!) lifestyle: the St. Louis Vegetarian Society's annual Meatout is a great place to start. For the price of admission, this year's event will offer an all-you-can-eat gourmet vegan dinner, with Noodles & Co. preparing favorites like Japanese pan noodles, Bangkok curry, whole-grain Tuscan fettuccine and more, all for you to stuff in your tofu-hole while you enjoy the music of local harpist Terri Langerak. Tickets are available in advance at MoKaBe's, Natural Way grocery in Webster Groves, Wild Oats Market and Sappington International Farmers' Market.

Sunday, March 25
Concert: Imrat Khan
Edison Theater, 6445 Forsyth, Washington University
$5-$15, all ages, 8 p.m., 314-935-6543,

You ever get hacked off because our town can't seem to scare up any decent hometown celebrities? I mean, fine, we've got John Goodman (doesn't live here), Kevin Kline (doesn't live here), Nelly (if you consider Lake St. Louis "here," I guess he kinda lives here)...but you know, you're not going to go out for coffee and run into an In Touch Weekly regular.

We do, however, harbor a few international heavies deep underground in the culture here, and master sitar player Imrat Khan is among them. Born in Calcutta in 1936, Khan comes from a long and distinguished family line of musicians, and has himself toured the world, played for royalty, been lauded and awarded with just about every honor there is...and lives right here in river city. (In fact, he once made an appearance at an event at The Commonspace community center, unbeknownst to us until later. We would've definitely bestowed some honor on him, too, had we been aware...)

Tonight, you can hear him in concert, along with virtuoso tabla player Samir Chatterjee, performing Indian classical music, which is often likened to jazz music in its improvisational style. World-class music from the celebrity you didn't know you were so close to.
