Lovedaze to feature almost 30 bands

CARTHAGE, Mo. — A new location in a rural setting will enable Lovedaze organizers to extend a festival into the early morning.

Lovedaze 4, produced by LoveWay Records, will be held at the Steel Rooster Saloon, located east of Carthage on Fairview Road. With indoor and outdoor accommodations, it can easily handle the festival's lineup of almost 30 musical acts.

"Because we're a couple of miles out of town, we can have indoor and outdoor stages," said Ben Bauder, festival organizer and vice-president of LoveWay. "We usually get shut down earlier than we hope for, because of residences around. This time, when it gets later, we can move the party indoors."

The lineup includes a number of local and touring groups in a variety of different genres, from Native American dancers to electronic music artists. It includes Clairaudients, EatMeRaw, Me Like Bees, Third Pary, Kat Niles Band, Last Chance Casanova and more.

Gates will open at 2 p.m. and the first act will begin at 3:10 p.m. A bar area will be available for those 21 and older. Campsites are available for $5, and food and drinks will also be available -- as well as an inflatable water slide.

"So everyone can keep cool," Bauder said.

Admission: $15. Details: 417-358-4401.

Speaking of Gardens


In an effort to curb prostitution, St. Louis police are targeting, and perhaps humiliating, the "johns" who use the services. Postcards mailed to the homes of those charged with trying to pick up prostitutes will offer a reminder about spreading sexually transmitted diseases, along with listing the court date. Do you think this is a good approach?

A. Yes.
N. No.
