Sept. 3: Sleepy Kitty
St. Louis-based indie-pop garage duo, Sleepy Kitty, is playing at The Dunes in Northwest tomorrow night. Front woman Paige Brubeck loops her vocals live while Evan Sult, the former drummer of rock band Harvey Danger, provides the beat. The pair's unique sound blends '90s post-punk with show-tunes and alternative rock.

Sept. 3-Oct. 27: The Art of Handwriting
You may be familiar with influential artists such as Georgia O'Keeffe, "Grandma Moses," and Alfred Stieglitz, but did you ever wonder what their handwriting looked like? The Smithsonian's Archives of American Art presents The Art of Handwriting, an exhibition featuring dozens of letters written by famous painters, photographers, sculptors, and other visual artists. Each letter is accompanied by an interpretation discussing how the penmanship of each artist corresponds to his or her signature style. You can check it out at the Lawrence A. Fleishmann Gallery through October 27. 

Music: "The Letter" by Nirvana Sitar & String Group
