OUT 463--STL TIDBITZ AND MORE!

Hello OUTTOWners


Its Wednesday!

Its time to get OUT….TOWN!




Before we get to the new of the newz, let us all remember this Thursday as it commemorates the 7th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in NYC, Wash DC and Philly. Hopefully one day we will all get the truth of what really happened. But we all probably would be dead and gone to our afterplaces before the real truth rears. Ya feel us?




And we are still waiting for yawl who are or know someone who is STL-LICIOUS. Just send us a pic and a brief bio at
outtown62221@yahoo.com and we will post you or them on our site!
And thanks to all who voted for OUTTOWN as Best Blog in the Riverfront Times 2008 Poll. In this year of voting in the national Presidential elections, we hope this was a motivator to keep the votes going. Hopefully we will have a chance this go round to win (last year it was Mayor Slay’s blog and the year before that was some heavy set brotha with a hip-hop blog whose name escapes us) . We will find out by Sept 25 when that special RFT issue is on newsstands.
And now to the newz:

2008 Democratic VP nominee Senator Joe Biden was making a campaign swing through Missouri Tuesday just one day after the Republican presidential ticket of John McCain and Sarah Palin held a rally in the Kansas City suburb of Lee's Summit.
At a town-hall forum at a Columbia fitness and recreation center, Biden cast McCain as a recent convert to the Barack Obama change theme who nonetheless remains out of touch with the economic uncertainties facing many families.
Later Tuesday, during a visit to Mehlville High School in a middle-class area of St. Louis County, Biden noted that Republicans are trying to portray Democrats as the party of big taxes, even though President Bush has racked up hundreds of billions of dollars of debt every year of his administration. A big crowd gathered in the south St. Louis County of Mehlville to hear from Delaware Senator Joe Biden, who's the bottom half of the Democratic presidential ticket.
There were an estimated 1,500 attending the town hall forum in the Mehlville High School gymnasium.
Some taxpayers in the district called to complain about a political event at a public school. However, school administrators say the event occurred after school let out and the Obama/Biden campaign is paying to use the facility.
The exact cost hasn't been determined yet, since the workers setting it up and taking it down have yet to tally their final hours. Biden was making his first visit to Missouri since being selected as Obama's running mate Missouri is a historic bellwether state, voting for every winning presidential candidate except one in the past century. Columbia is the site of the University of Missouri's flagship campus and is a traditional Democratic bastion in the center of Missouri. But Republicans have been making gains in Columbia's home of Boone County, transforming it into a particularly hot battleground.
Biden and Palin are to debate Oct. 2 at Washington University in St. Louis.

The three finalists vying to become St. Louis Public Schools' eighth superintendent in a little over five years would all bring extensive administrative experience to the job.


But only one, former Providence, R.I., superintendent Donnie Evans (ABOVE), has put in full-time service at the top of a school district.




Another of finalists, Eric Becoats, served as co-interim superintendent of the Guildford County schools in Greensboro, N.C. until Monday — when that district's new superintendent took the helm.





The third finalist, Kelvin Adams, would bring familiarity with St. Louis and its schools to the job.
Adams, now the chief of staff for the Recovery School District of New Orleans, served as the executive director for human resources for the St. Louis schools in 2006-07.

All three candidates fielded questions from the public at a forum Tuesday at Vashon High School, 3035 Cass Avenue. The Vashon forum will cap a day of meeting teachers, administrators and students across the district.

We will see wassup here cuz its already allegations that some of the candidates have been doing some NUNYA biz while in office.






Funeral services have been set for Kirkwood’s longtime mayor, Mike Swoboda. Services will be at 4 p.m. Thursday at Kirkwood’s First Presbyterian Church. Swoboda died Saturday. He was shot in the head in February when disgruntled resident Charles "Cookie" Thornton burst into a city council meeting and began firing. Two police officers, two council members and the public works director died in the rampage. Police shot and killed Thornton. Swoboda appeared to be improving before recent setbacks. Kirkwood’s current mayor, Art McDonnell, said Swoboda’s death was caused in part by the shooting and in part by his struggle with cancer.






St. Louis Rams coach Scott Linehan had high hopes for a turnaround this season. Instead, the Rams looked like last year’s 3-win team, or even worse, with a dismal showing in their 38-3 opening loss at Philadelphia.“We’re going to have to play a whole lot better,” Linehan said Monday. “We can’t expect to win any game if we play like that.”The Rams were manhandled in all phases of the most lopsided opening loss in the franchise’s 71-year history, leaving coaches with a comprehensive list of areas needing improvement for this week’s home opener against the Super Bowl champion Giants.The offense mustered only 166 yards while going 0-for-11 on third down conversions, and was on the field for only 45 plays. New offensive coordinator Al Saunders noted that should have been closer to a play total for the first half, although he had expected a tough day against the Eagles’ pressure defense. On those third downs, they needed to convert an average of 10 yards.


Linehan emphasized in a team meeting Monday that it was only one game and that the Eagles’ play was “nearly flawless.” But he also said he didn’t mince words about the awful performance, also blaming himself.“You have to keep the perspective that it is one game,” Linehan said. “But you have to call it like it is. I told them the accountability factor has to be high across the board, we have to all look at ourselves.“We basically played on the wrong side of the field the whole game.”

Next week, they’ll be a bit short-handed in her home opener with the Super Bowl Camps New York Giants at the Edward Jones Dome, Wide receiver Drew Bennett fractured his left foot in the opening series and will be out at least a month, and defensive end Leonard Little and guard Jacob Bell both have hamstring strains.Without Bennett on the field, Torry Holt faced constant double-teaming and totaled one catch for 9 yards. Entering the season, Holt’s 753 catches led all NFL receivers this decade.“Yeah, I’d double Torry,” Linehan said. “He’s the one guy on our roster who has any catches.”Linehan and Haslett disagreed with knee-jerk media assessments that the Rams appeared flat and lacked emotion.“I think we lacked our ability to execute and I think you get enthusiasm through execution,” Linehan said. “They are into this season and they know we didn’t pass Test 1 of 16.”
In related news, The St. Louis Rams originally drafted wide receiver Eddie Kennison in the first round of the 1996 NFL Draft. The 35-year-old Kennison returned to the Rams Tuesday after signing a one-year deal with the club. The team's need for a pass catcher grew when the Rams lost Drew Bennett for a month with a foot injury.







Major league batting leader Albert Pujols may be headed to reconstructive elbow surgery that could sideline him into next season. Or he might not.
A day after the St. Louis slugger told KSDK television that he was considering having the operation, the Cardinals said it's not clear whether surgery is needed. General manager John Mozeliak was caught off guard by Pujols' remarks.
"You never deal in absolutes, but there are no plans for surgery at this time," Mozeliak said after the Cardinals' 4-3 win over the Cubs. "It's resolved."
Pujols has been playing with a torn ligament since 2003, but the Cardinals said in a statement on Tuesday that management, Pujols and his representatives agree that the injury "does not appear to be season-threatening nor do they have a clear indication that it will or will not require future surgery."
Meanwhile, Puhols homered for the third straight game to erase an early three-run deficit In Tuesday’s win against the Cubs. The Cardinals started the night 4 1/2 games behind Milwaukee in the wild-card race. Now they are 3 ½ games behind. With 19 more games left, we will see if the Cards could at least win their division.

A high-profile antitrust lawyer said he plans to file a lawsuit this week aimed at blocking
InBev’s $52 billion buyout of Anheuser-Busch Companies Inc.
San Francisco lawyer Joseph Alioto Jr. said he plans to file suit Wednesday in federal court in St. Louis, calling the deal “bad news for the beer industry.” Alioto is alleging the Belgian company’s planned acquisition of the St. Louis brewing icon and maker of Budweiser beer will harm consumers by leading to higher prices for beer and diminishing competition.

Charges have been filed against three teens accused of shoplifting, attempted carjacking and leading police on a chase in St. Louis County. Joseph King, 17, has been charged with second-degree attempted robbery and stealing $500 or more. King is being held on $15,000 bond.
Jeremy Grant, 17, has been charged with stealing $500 or more and is being held on $10,000 bond. Jonathan Brown, 17, has been charged with stealing $500 or more and resisting arrest and is being held on $10,000 bond. The fourth suspect who was taken into custody is a juvenile and is in family court custody. The fifth suspect is still on the loose.
All of the suspects are allegedly involved in an incident that happened on last Tuesday night. According to police, the incident began when the suspects stole jeans from the JC Penny store at the South County Mall. When St. Louis County police arrived, the five suspects ran to a Jeep in the mall parking lot. It was later determined that the Jeep was stolen.
The suspects jumped out of the Jeep, leaving the stolen vehicle and jeans behind.
Police say two of the suspects then tried to carjack a man in another store parking lot. One of the suspects punched the victim in the face, but they were unable to steal his vehicle. Those two suspects ran from the scene, but were caught by police.
The other two suspects ran to the 3200 block of Bainburry Court where they stole a minivan. Police spotted the van on I-55 headed toward St. Louis. The suspects crashed the van and then fled the scene of the accident. They were caught by St. Louis police.

A judge on Friday banned a local attorney from a Glen Carbon park after police charged the man with asking people whether he could tickle their children.Glen Carbon Police charged Charles R. Douglas, who has a law practice in Glen Carbon, with four misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct. He is accused of talking to people at Miner Park about wanting to tickle children.Douglas, 58, told a reporter that for years he has done a "tickle monster" routine with children and that it's "a joking thing that I do." He said he enjoys seeing children laugh and smile, and never touches a child without permission from a parent.

Douglas said the charges are "the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen." He said he's considering lawsuits against the police and against the people who made reports to police.After the charges were filed, Madison County Associate Judge Steve Stobbs ordered that Douglas not enter Miner Park. Douglas said he goes to the park to walk, for exercise.Douglas said he was booked Friday and released with a notice to appear in court later.
Uh, dont he have better things to do, like hear cases?

STL fans of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" can tune in to watch two St. Louis area s get made over. The show typically awards new homes to needy families, but in St. Louis, producers chose two beneficiaries. The Martirez family in Shrewsbury will see their new home today. And SamMalek, who was born with cerebral palsy, was chosen for a small business makeover for his More Than Coffee shop at 14240 Manchester Road, east of Highway 141. The episode that features the demolishing and rebuilding of his shop will air in November.







Congrats to two vet radio personalities whose been in the STL biz for 20 years. Clear Channel’s Tony Scott(PICTURED), who has been a dee-jay for Majic 104.9 (nee Majic 108) for 2-0 years told a packed crowd Saturday at its 30th Anniversary celebration at the Starlight Room that he recently signed a contract extension for four more years to be the host of the long-running Tony Scott Show (nee the Breakfast Crew) and said to the crowd that he would retire here in ST. Louis and “get on Tammie Holland (his co-host) nerves for four more years.” (FOR PICS OF THIS EVENT GO TO OUT 462 ) The other 20 year personality is Charlie Brennan who is radio host of his namesake show on KMOX (and panelist on the KETC talk shoe, “DonnyBrook.” On KMOX’s website he taklked on how he got the gig: In 1988, I was making $12,500 per annum working for WNTN Radio in suburban Boston… One day, my dad paid a visit to my Boston apartment. Viewing my kitchen chairs, which I had purchased at Medimart, he sat down on my couch, which I had rescued from the curb, and lit a cigarette.“You can’t live like this forever,” he said. Shortly thereafter, I sent out 75 letters and tapes to the top talk and news radio stations in the nation…Around August, I got two nibbles. One was from a radio station owned by Merv Griffin in Hartford. The other was from KMOX in St. Louis. I only knew of KMOX because my college roommate from Baltimore listened to Cards games on KMOX. In addition, KMOX’s gigantic ratings always caught my eye in industry publications. “We like your tape, said Bob Osborne, KMOX’s Program Director. “But we want to hear a full hour interview. Send another tape and call me in a few days.” And the rest as they say is history.











As Nelly’s long awaited 5th CD, Brass Knuckles” is released next Tuesday, more rumors about the hit STL native rapper brews up. The latest is a supposed hookup that Nelly had with signer/actress Solonge Knowles when both were in the STL during the Labor day weekend. According to MediaTakeOut.com Nelly and Solange Knowles reportedly "hung out". Solange was in St. Louis promoting her new album (at Six Flags concert) and Nelly was in town with family. But the two managed to have a secret rendezvous. The insider explained, "Solange was only in town for one night and she made sure to give Nelly a call ... and then they hung out." Of course, no one knows what happened when the two of them hung out.










Grammy Award nominated East St. Louis native singer/producer Akon may be in trouble yet again while on stage. A second "fan-throwing" scandal was caught on tape throwing two female concertgoers at a show in Guyana, South America on Saturday, August 30. The R'n'B artist was videotaped performing on stage in a black
t-shirt and dark-colored skirt. Enthusiastically asking concertgoers to follow in his move, he even danced with one of his male fans onstage. In between his performances, Akon took his shirt off and tried to "crowdsurf to a camera stand about 100 yards off stage. He finally got there, dancing with two young female fans and two male fans. It was during that time that he grabbed one of the female fans and pushed her into the crowd as she tried to hold his hand. He then grabbed the other lady who tried to embrace him from behind and tossed her into the crowd. Getting physically aggressive with concertgoer, indeed, isn't something new for Akon. He has on Wednesday, Sept 3 made an appearance for a brief hearing at Fishkill Town Court to ask a judge to grant his request for a jury trial in relation with his earlier fan-tossing case where he faces criminal charges. He's slated to be back in court on December 1. Akon is yet to comment on the incident. In April last year, Akon caused controversy when he simulated sex with a 15-year-old girl at a club in Trinidad and Tobago. Meanwhile, Akon has hit back at claims he assaulted two female fans at a concert last month and released video footage of the event to prove he is innocent. Edited footage of a gig in South America appeared to show Akon star striking two women while he crowd-surfed. But Akon's publicist has released a new tape of the Guyana concert, taken from another angle, which shows a different side to the story. I guess its all about “reasonable” doubt for sure.

Adopted St Louisan Niecey Nash’s new sitcom, “Do Not Disturb,” which also stars Jerry O’Connell, about the goings on at a swanky NYC hotel, premieres tonite on Fox 8:30 p.m. CST) But the critics haven’t been too kind especially USA Today who said “the real shame is that the show is wasting some talented performers, not only Nash and O'Connell (who has been more appealing elsewhere), but also The Class' Jesse Tyler Ferguson — stuck in a role and a show that has no class to speak of. And that's disturbing.” OUCH. Oh well, they said the same ish about classic comedies such as “Married with Children,” and that ran for 11 seasons. Well, as they say, you gotta judge for yourself. We in the STL are rooting for ya Niece!









And speaking of STL artists, yet another STL act can add Billboard charts to their resume along side Chuck Berry, Fontella Bass, and Nelly to name a few. St. Louis rockers Ludo’s “You’re Awful, I Love You” CD at long last, has cracked the Billboard 200, at No. 166. The new milestone comes as the band’s debut Def Jam/Island single “Love Me Dead” continues its long climb up Billboard’s Modern Rock Tracks chart, where it’s in the top ten. Congrats to the band who will be a part of Pointfest on Sept. 20 at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater.













Café Soul is returning to their home stage. The popular monthly open mike event which is hosted by STL singer Coco Soul (in the middle) is returning to Lucas House for its September show on the 19th. For the past two months. The event was moved to the bigger Lumen when folk complained of it not being enough room to move. Well, when they moved they had its very successful 2nd year anniversary party in July. But most folk complained of the acoustics in the venue. After one more month at Lumen in August and a not-so-great turnout as the July event caused the Café Soul crew to return back to Lucas House.. Now, Cafe Soul is back at the more intimate and appropriate Lucas School House at 8 p.m. Sept. 19. Admission is $10.






Congrats are in store for three STL stars who jumped or will be jumping the broom this month.








One was STL fashion designer Passion Bragg-Crawford, who said ‘I DO” last Saturday at St. Nicholas church in downtown St. Louis.
















Upcoming is the wedding of Konnection’s “Wordsmith” Perkins who will say his vows with his fiancee’ next Wednesday in the Bahamas where they will also have their honeymoon.
















And the big papparazzi wedding was Atty Jeannie Roberts of the business tycoon Roberts Brothers brood, got married last weekend in the Bahamas (one of her bridesmaids was TV actress Keisha Knight Pulliam) . She and her hubby are honeymooning in Negril.











Hoodstar Mocha Latte is currently getting word that she may be one of the ones selected in this year’s Black Who’s Who. Also, if yawl were tuning into 104.1 personality Boogei D’s radio show Tuesday she called up on his show when the question was asked, “What Should You do if Your Man Cheats?” Well Mocha pretty much said, to not pay attention to him, ignore him, cuz he expects for you to get upset, or mad.” Hmmm. We guess she’s going by experience but it was def interesting gab.

There were a few sightings of some STL celebs last week which we thought you might find interesting or ho-hum. First sighting was Atty. Wayman Smith who was at the Walgeeen’s on Clayton Road sitting near the picture booth talking to a lady who was using the picture computer. The other sighting was DJ Soundz getting gas at a BP station in Belleville and he sat in his van with a female for awhile before he got gas. Don’t know what that was all about, but hey……

And lastly, big ups to Tony Scott Show personality Tammie Holland who referenced our blog OUTTOWN during her Inside Report last week on the St. Lunatics and their new fashion line. When asked on why she used us, she said she credited us cuz it was one of slow days and she had to get some scoop for the air. Well, we take it how we get it. LOL.

WORDZ to the WHYZ at the MTV 2008 Music Awards.




Why did the MTV folk have MTV personality Sway reporting from a helicopter? ….. Why did red carpet host Kim Stolz rudely interrupt guest red carpet host singer Taylor Swift to interview T.I. came on the carpet to perform? Why did T-Pain ride on the red carpet on an elephant? Why was Fatman Scoop wearing a white tee, red satin underwear and flip flops to the awards? Why were the performances of Katy Perry, LL Cool J and Lupe Fiasco were interrupted with commercial breaks? ….Why was Christina Applegate lip synching and was looking like a techno Rihanna?....Why was Jamie Foxx talking loud and not funny?.....Why did they “comedian” Russell Brand (and we put comedian in quotes) to host the show? And why did Jordin Sparks get pissed with the host for ripping Jonas Brothers for having virginity promise rings? Why was Lil Waynes pants sagging down to the point of falling down and holding his crotch throughout the performance? Why did they have those useless VMA Alerts during the commercials? Why didn’t Best New Artist winners Tokio didn’t wanna thank their record company?....Why did Britney get a standing ovation? And why was she the big winner? And why did they have so many stage problems like not giving Demi Moore her mike on time when she got on stage? Why was paris Hilton looking in the wrong camera? Why weren’t the dancers who won the dance battle not performing on stage which was their prize?....Why didn’t Chris Brown and Neyo perform? …. Why did Kanye’s finale performance seem more like an afterthought? Why weren’t there any 25th anniversary tributes (or at least a surprise from Madonna)? Why did they make folk think Paramore was performing via satellite somewhere and they were actually there? Why was T.I. lip-synching? Why did the host say that he and LL Cool J were shopping for lingerie to try on with each other? Why was the post show cut short (just 10 minutes in)?
And lastly, why was this year’s show BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORING?





IN THE MIA FILE. Where is STL fashion designer Navish?

THE U.S. Bank Broadway Series Shows and Specials: Oprah Winfrey presents THE COLOR PURPLE, October 21-November 2, 2008; Curtain times for the U.S. Bank Broadway Series presentation are Tuesdays through Fridays at 8 p.m.; Saturdays at 2 & 8 p.m.; Sunday, October 26 at 2 & 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, November 2 at 2 p.m. There is also a weekday matinee on Thursday, October 30 at 1 p.m.
Nominated for eleven Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, THE COLOR PURPLE opened on December 1, 2006 at the Broadway Theatre where it ran for over two record-breaking years. It is based on the classic Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Alice Walker and the moving film by Steven Spielberg. It is the unforgettable and inspiring story of a woman named Celie, who finds the strength to triumph over adversity, and discover her unique voice in the world. With a joyous GRAMMY®-nominated score featuring gospel, jazz, pop and the blues, THE COLOR PURPLE is about hope and the healing power of love. Michael Kuchwara, the Associated Press described THE COLOR PURPLE as “a roof-raising story of triumph.” And Richard Corliss of TIME Magazine said, “[it is] a soaring, epic tale. It made a joyful noise in my heart.” Elysa Gardner from USA Today raved, “Pure heart! It celebrates the inspiring relationships of faith and love, a Broadway hit!”
As on Broadway, the first North American Tour of THE COLOR PURPLE is directed by Gary Griffin. THE COLOR PURPLE features a libretto by Pulitzer Prize-winner Marsha Norman, music and lyrics by Grammy Award®-winning composers/lyricists Brenda Russell, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray, and choreography by Donald Byrd. The original creative team of Tony Award®-winner John Lee Beatty (sets), Paul Tazewell (costumes), Tony Award®-winner Brian MacDevitt (lighting), Jon Weston (sound), Jonathan Tunick (orchestrations) and Kevin Stites (Music Supervisor) was reunited for the tour. The first North American Tour is produced by Oprah Winfrey, Scott Sanders, Roy Furman, Quincy Jones, Creative Battery, Anna Fantaci & Cheryl Lachowicz, Independent Presenters Network, Lowy Family Group, Stephanie McClelland, Gary Winnick, Jan Kallish, Nederlander Presentations, Inc., Bob and Harvey Weinstein, Andrew Asnes & Adam Zotovich and Todd Johnson. The original cast recording is available on EMI/Angel Records, and THE COLOR PURPLE: A Memory Book of the Broadway Musical (Avalon/Carroll & Graf) is available in bookstores now. Ariel Investments is a proud sponsor of THE COLOR PURPLE.
Single tickets for THE COLOR PURPLE go on sale Sunday, September 7 at noon at the Fox Theatre box office, online through http://www.metrotix.com/, MetroTix charge by phone at 314/534-1111 and all MetroTix outlets.

CABARET ST. LOUIS




Cabaret St. Louis is coming in October. The inaugural Cabaret St. Louis fall lineup will include Fran Landesman, Steve Ross, Sylvia McNair, Lee Lessack and Tony Sandler. Performances will be held at The Sheldon, Kranzberg Arts Center, The Gaslight Theatre plus additional venues. All shows begin at 8 p.m. Tickets for Cabaret St. Louis fall season go on sale Tuesday, September 2 at 10 a.m. at all MetroTix locations.

FRAN LANDESMAN returns to her roots October 22-25 at The Gaslight Theatre. The legendary proprietess of Gaslight Square’s Crystal Palace presented such artists as Barbra Streisand, The Smothers Brothers and Elaine May. But outside of St. Louis, Ms. Landesman is most well known for her own songs and shows. Spring Can Hang You Up The Most and The Ballad Of The Sad Young Man became standards and were recorded by Elle Fitzgerald, Barbra Streisand and Sarah Vaughn. Fifty years later, accompanied by her son Myles, and around the corner from the old Crystal Palace, this top songwriter and cultural icon will treat St. Louis to an evening of storytelling and song. Tickets for Fran Landesman are $35.
The smartest of the smart set and St. Louis favorite, STEVE ROSS, returns with his latest work, “To Wit: Ross on Wry – Funny Songs Throughout The Ages,” October 1-4 at the new Kranzberg Arts Center in Grand Center. Ross is no stranger to St. Louis, as he has performed many times at The Grand Center Cabaret, Cabaret in The Savoy Room and St. Louis Muny. After Ross’s 2004 St. Louis appearance, Chuck Lavazzi of KDHX Radio wrote, “The fact is, Mr. Ross has a breezy elegance on stage that’s reminiscent of Fred Astaire, Noel Coward, Cole Porter and, above all, the late and much lamented Bobby Short.” Tickets for Steve Ross are $40.
Cabaret at The Sheldon will host Grammy Winner SYLVIA MCNAIR October 16-17 for two performances only. A beloved performer at Opera Theatre of St. Louis, Ms. McNair has segued from opera to the Great American Songbook, the music with which she feels most at home. Now, instead of singing V'adoro pupille on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera, she's singing Embraceable You to rave reviews. Of McNair's Algonquin Oak Room debut, Rex Reed wrote, "Her phrasing is exemplary. Her modulations are inspired. I could get used to this kind of ecstasy." Tickets for Sylvia McNair are $45.
LEE LESSACK’S lyric baritone vocals and sophisticated yet endearing persona have made him a shining star of the international cabaret scene. His tribute to Johnny Mercer, “Too Marvelous For Words,” runs October 29-November 1 at the Kranzberg Arts Center. As we celebrate the centennial of Mercer, Lessack is the perfect match for this romantic of songwriters. Billboard Magazine calls his singing, "Cabaret romanticism of a high order." Tickets for Lee Lessack are $30.
TONY SANDLER finishes the CSTL Fall season November 13-14 at The Sheldon with “Chevalier-Maurice & Me.” This show is neither caricature nor impersonation, but a heartfelt homage to this widely-admired entertainer. It has been the subject of a PBS special and DVD, and contains the charm and savoir faire that Maurice himself brought to film and stage. Tickets for Tony Sandler are $40.
Tickets for all five Cabaret St. Louis performances go on sale Tuesday, September 2 at 10 a.m. at all MetroTix locations. To charge by phone call 314-534-1111 or online at www.MetroTix.com. Memberships available by calling 314-726-1616. For more information, visit www.cabaretstl.org. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no need to invest much at first.
You may begin earning with a money that usually goes
for daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one project for several years,
and I'm ready to let you know my secrets at my blog.

Please visit blog and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I earn 1000-2000 per daily now.
