To-do: Wednesday 9/9

Tonight, the Botanical Gardens of the Ozarks will celebrate another Summer Cocktails event called Moonflowers and Margaritas at 6:30pm. If you didn’t win tickets last week, you can still pick some up at the door this evening for $20 ($15 for members).

Anyone heading to Smoke & Barrel tonight will be treated to what Pitchfork once called the 2nd best surf band in the world today. Check out Daikaiju’s MySpace page and see why.

Over at George’s, locals Cletus Got Shot are opening for James McMurtry. It’s an 18+ show and tickets are $15.

Wanna dance? DJ Tanner Beam is spinning another 90s set at Club FIX tonight. Apparently, last month’s set packed the house.
