As usual for the week between the year's last two major holidays, there are no major touring jazz or creative music performers visiting St. Louis in the next few days. However, there is a pretty good selection of local music options for New Year's Eve, plus a few other noteworthy shows.
Saturday, December 31
Although two of the city's most prominent jazz venues, Jazz at the Bistro and The Sheldon, will be closed on New Year's Eve, there still are a number of options available for those looking to hear some jazz to ring out the old year and ring in the new. (Many of these events are package deals involving dinner and drinks, so be sure to check online or call ahead for details and/or reservations.)
