Euclid Records Presents Gazebo A-Go-Go Oct. 1

Euclid Records is ready to kick off the Fall weather with a full day of musical excitement, food, drink, crafts, art, and a store-wide sale on Saturday Oct. 1. With five great St. Louis bands and presentations by music video collector Spike Priggen, all held at the Webster Groves Gazebo in Old Orchard, the first ever Gazebo A-Go-Go will be chock full of fun for everybody. Crafters and artists are invited to showcase their wares alongside the music. Food, beer, and wine will be for sale. Meanwhile, down the block at the Euclid Records store, 601 E. Lockwood, the annual sidewalk sale will present tons of hitherto unseen vinyl and CDs priced to move, and everything inside the store will be 10% off. Euclid Records is open from 10 am until 9 pm on Saturdays.

The music will kick off at 1 pm with the St. Louis heavy metal band Black Fast who knocked everybody out with an instore on Record Store Day in April. Next up, at 2:30 pm will be St. Louis pop rockers the Incurables, followed by the second ever reunion performance of the legendary 80s local band the Painkillers at 4:00, the fabulously noisy pop artists Sleepy Kitty at 5:30, and the shoegazing psychedelia of Troubadour Dali at 7:00. Euclid Records has released albums by the Painkillers, Sleepy Kitty, and Troubadour Dali this year.

Spike Priggen is the curator of the Bedazzled.tv and scopitones.com video blogs, and he will present two hours of rare seen music video clips from his collection, starting at 8:30 pm. First up is a program of “Scopitones,” the almost forgotten precursor to the modern music video, shot on 16mm film and shown on an early type of “Video Juke-Box.” Scopitone machines were usually located in bars and lounges, allowing for a slightly more “risqué” feel than one could see on TV or movies at that time. The 2nd hour of the program will feature newly unearthed footage originally broadcast on French TV, including early live footage of bands such as the Kinks, the Who, the Yardbirds, Them, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Otis Redding, the Moody Blues, the Pretty Things, and the Spencer Davis Group, as well as much, much more.

Artists and crafters who wish to rent space for the day should contact Joe at Euclid Records (314-961-8978 or joe@euclidrecords.com). Space will be $50.00, and sellers must provide their own tables. A limited amount of tents should be available. The portion of Lockwood next to the Gazebo should be blocked for the entire day.

Euclid Records would like to thank the sponsors of this event, all local businesses in the general Old Orchard vicinity: Webster University Film Series, Naturally Pure Salon, Highway 61 Roadhouse, Cyrano’s, and Garland Wines.

Here's a sample of a Scopitone from scopitones.com.
