St. Louis, Missouri, USA: [Blues]

Cicero's Basement Bar, 6510 Delmar. Wednesday nights, 9:30 pm to 1 am.
Mojo Syndrome hosts this jam session. Strictly blues, it can be a guitar
player logjam session, but horns are welcome any time. The host band
likes to do first and third sets, but if a singer and drummer can be
found, have been known to wait until 12:45 to start their third set. If
you go, ask for Derek, and tell him you saw it on the rec.music.bluenote.
You will get at least 20 minutes of air time if you can play a little.
[Update: this info is being revised.]

St. Louis, Missouri, USA: [Misc]

A note on how to get current information if you're in town: In St.
Louis, the best source for information is the alternative weekly ``The
Riverfront Times,'' which has club information in the middle. A
generally less extensive listing is in the Saint Louis Post-Dispatch on
Thursdays, which includes a useful list of bands with the styles they play.
