Snarky Puppy (pictured) is coming back to St. Louis to perform at 8:00 p.m. Thursday, May 9 at The Demo.
(The Demo is the new venue at 4144 Manchester in the Grove neighborhood, next to Atomic Cowboy, that's being programmed jointly by the music bookers from Lola and the Firebird. At this writing, the club's website linked above is just a placeholder; their Facebook page has a little more information.)
Three-time winners of "Best Jazz Act" in the the Dallas Observer's Music Awards, Snarky Puppy is a loosely structured collective led by bassist Michael League and made up primarily of musicians who studied in the well-known jazz program at the University of North Texas in Denton. They played here in St. Louis most recently back in August 2012 at The Gramophone while touring in support of their live CD/DVD GroundUP, which was released last year.
Tickets for Snarky Puppy at The Demo are $12 in advance, $15 day of show and will go on sale at 5:00 p.m. this Wednesday, January 30 via Ticketfly.
