The Captain Goes Back Under Cover

Labor Day will always be my favorite weekend in September, but the second weekend is starting to give it a run for the money thanks to An Under Cover Weekend!



Last year’s 5th edition of @AUCW was in the Top 5 for best weekend’s in 2011.  Check out my recap from last year here.

In the lead up to AUCW 6 the organizers have put together some videos highlighting the past installments that are worth a watch.  In fact, I’ll even give them the #2ForTuesday seal of approval.

The lineups on Friday and Saturday were super impressive in 2011, but this year’s lineups look formidable as well.



The 90s onslaught of Friday nite looks stronger to me, but there are a couple of wild cards on Saturday that might pay off big time.  My prediction is that Animal Empty as PJ Harvey will rule Friday nite, mostly because I’m a huge fan of Polly Jean’s music.  On Saturday nite I’m tempted to pick Dots Not Feathers on the strength of their Stevie Wonder set last year, but I get the feeling that Palace will steal the show with their ABBA songs.  But anyway you slice it, these shows are not to be missed.

I’m so excited for the show that I’m even promising to refrain from complaining about the venue this year!  So if you are in St. Louis this weekend, then I expect to see you downtown at the Firebird!
