The Lab w/ LOOPRAT

The Monocle, 4510 Manchester Ave, St. Louis, MO

Join us for our 3rd monthly installment of 'The Lab' w/ LOOPRAT, where you may hear us testing new music from the collective or experimenting with revamped renditions of past releases. Don't be surprised if special guests sit in for a surprise (co)lab every now and then either. Being such a large collective of musicians, LOOPRAT is hoping to showcase the diverse array of sounds that we pull from individually and bring together as a group.

The Lab w/ LOOPRAT

The Monocle, 4510 Manchester Ave , St. Louis, MO

Join us in kicking off the newest FREE monthly series at The Monocle. 'The Lab' w/ LOOPRAT sets the stage for the jazzrap collective to test new music in the works each month. Expect to hear collaborations from LOOPRAT solo artists Davie Napalm, Joe Ferb, NatKingFlo and Armani as well as unreleased group tracks including fresh material featuring the newest member of LOOPRAT, BlackBuddahBear. The surprises won't stop there. More avid LOOPRAT listeners may be aware of some of the instrumental groups within the collective as well. Keep an eye and ear out for more from Sojy Fatz (guitarist Joe Ferb and saxophonist Sam Katz's production side project) as well as Quintessential, the instrumental jazz combo side project spearheaded by bassist Albert Marshall.

What does LOOPRAT have cooking in this month's Lab? Pull up September 5th to experience the experiment.

Durand Jones & The Indications w/ LOOPRAT

The Bootleg at Atomic Cowboy, 4140 Manchester Ave, St. Louis

Doors 8pm | Show 9pm | $10 ADV | $13 DOS | 21+

Bayou-born soul sensation, Durand Jones got his start in the church, after being forced to sing in the choir of his rural hometown Hillaryville, Louisiana because his Grandmother thought he sang too much at home. When his music career took him to Bloomington, Indiana, he was selected to join the legendary Indiana University Soul Revue, and it was through his involvement that he met writer/producer duo Aaron Frazer and Blake Rhein. The three began writing original soul music, recording themselves straight to tape in the basements of Bloomington - and their debut album is out now.
