Independence Day and STL250 converge on Forest Park for America's Biggest Birthday Party featuring The Band Perry. The grounds that once hosted the 1904 World's Fair will once again welcome fairgoers from near and far.
Thanks to the generous support of presenting sponsor Anheuser-Busch InBev, platinum sponsors Edward Jones, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Nestle Purina, all Fair Saint Louis shows will be presented to the community for free and will be open to all ages.
Mary Lambert is good at two things; crying and singing. Nowhere is this better reflected than on her debut EP, Letters Don’t Talk. The collection of songs, released in 2012, established Lambert as a formidable Seattle artist and caught the attention of local hip-hop duo, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, with whom she wrote and sang the same-sex rights anthem “Same Love.”
Lambert graduated from Cornish College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Music in Music Composition. She is also an award-winning spoken-word artist. She published her debut book of poetry, 500 Tips for Fat Girls, in January 2013. Capitol Records will release Mary’s first full- length album in 2014.
