#AUCW11: August 24-26 at Delmar Hall

For our 11th year, we are excited to announce that An Under Cover Weekend will present three iconic decades, over three nights, at Delmar Hall — the 80's, 90's, and 00's on August 24th, 25th, and 26th, 2017, respectively.

Dubbed a “tradition” by the St. Louis Beacon and “the hottest cover show in town” by ALIVE Magazine, and routinely making local publications' Top Shows Of The Year lists, An Under Cover Weekend has presented a decade of legendary tribute sets of an incredibly diverse set of artists, such as The Beastie Boys, The Four Tops, ABBA, DEVO, Eurythmics, AC/DC, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Rhianna, Fugazi, David Bowie, and LCD Soundsystem. Some of the sets performed at AUCW have even gone on to become popular local tribute acts, like the Street Fighting Band (Rolling Stones tribute).

Most of all, though, AUCW has set countless music fans on the course to finding their new favorite local bands. All of the bands that perform at An Under Cover Weekend actively play out and record original music in St. Louis. And, for our annual event, these bands take on the persona of a famous band for one night, in what is typically visually and sonically indistinguishable from that of the heroes that they are portraying.

Having already been housed in three beloved St. Louis venues thus far, AUCW has evolved tremendously throughout the years. Over time we have made many investments in helping to develop the bands that play our event — including coaching bands as they prepare, writing well-publicized band-centric announcements, providing professional photo shoots and recording sessions, and adding a massive light show — and the bands have responded by setting the bar higher and higher, with every set. Now, for both the fans and the bands, we are extremely proud to be able to bring Delmar Hall's level of production, and the incredible vibe of the room, to the next iteration of An Under Cover Weekend.

Fans of the event have gone to say some amazing things about AUCW — "Another reason I <3 #AUCW, it's like time travel, but cheaper.", "Know this: AUCW is one of the coolest things in St. Louis.", "Second to my wedding, the best night of my life.", and "If record store day is Hipster Christmas, #AUCW is Hipster Chanukah." — and this incredible support is what has kept us going, each and every year.

We hope that you will join us as we embark on this exciting new chapter for An Under Cover Weekend and look forward to creating amazing experiences with you for many more decades to come!

Each night of AUCW11 will feature tributes from a different decade — the 80's, 90's, and 00's, respectively. Bands will choose artists that have enough popular songs from that decade to comprise a 30 minute set and ideally, tribute choices should be popular artists, no matter the genre. The term "popular" is a loose one, and in this case it doesn't necessarily mean "pop" the genre, either. Ask yourself if you, and the people that you know, would drive from the outskirts of St. Louis to witness a tribute set for the particular artist in question. If the answer is yes, then you should be in good shape. BTW, it is only necessary to provide tribute submissions for the dates that you are available to play.
