Lo-Fi Cherokee
Saturday, April 8th
Lo-Fi Cherokee is a completely unique
event conceived in 2012 by filmmaker
Bill Streeter. Lo-Fi Cherokee is best
described as a hybrid event that brings
music, video, social media and St. Louis
city culture together. Over 16 local
bands and solo acts from new unknowns
to veterans of the scene set up shop in
various locales up and down Cherokee
Street, and play stripped-down versions
of their songs. Bill Streeter and a series
of production crews moved from one
location to the next, capturing immacu-
late audio and video of the performanc-
es in the span of a single day. For more
