Pale Divine
8:00 p.m. June 29 @ The Pageant

w/ The Finns – Before he became the guitarist for a little-known band called Guns N’ Roses, hometown rock god Richard Fortus had a series of other bands and gigs. He’s done it all, from playing in Thin Lizzy and the Psychedelic Furs to founding Love Spit Love, but Fortus first found success with St. Louis rockers Pale Divine (née the Eyes). Pale Divine was well-loved in town and there have long been tales of mini-skirt mamas chasing after the band members like some kind of late ’80s version of A Hard Day’s Night. Opening up for Pale Divine is the Finns, another beloved local band of yesteryear, whose delicious power-pop jams haven’t been played live since the band called it quits in the mid ’90s.
