Lucas Seduces St. Louis

Gary made a lightning blitz into the midwest with a packed solo Golem performance at the St. Louis Jewish Film Festival on June 18th, which brought out an enthusiastic crowd that ranged agewise from 5 to 75, including local hero David Suhrkamp, former lead singer of one of Gary's fave 70's art-rock bands, Pavlov's Dog, who admitted to being a longtime Lucas fan. Gary also made the media circuit there with two radio appearances live on public listener supported KPAX as well as humongous AM radio institution KMOX, "the Voice of St. Louis", where Gary astonished the primetime talk radio listening audience with a frantic acoustic version of "The Junker and the Jewess" from his Golem score. The media attention was capped with a two page interview spread in the St. Louis weekly, the Riverfront Times—click here to read.
