Drummer Stanton Moore has made a couple more trips to St. Louis this fall, performing at the Old Rock House with Garage A Trois and with his own trio at 2320 Cherokee.
Tickets for the all-ages show are $20 for general admission, with a $2 surcharge at the door for minors, and go on sale at 5:00 p.m. today, Friday, November 5 via the Pageant box office and Ticketmaster.
