Off Broadway is one of the few St. Louis music venues that attracts indie rock and punk bands that are up and coming, but that aren"t completely obscure. A perfect example is the brand new psychedelic folk group Here We Go Magic, which played a beautiful set at Off Broadway a couple weeks ago. The band had stopped in St. Louis on it"s way to the festival wristbands, where they played a ton of shows that got pretty impressive reviews. And the gun slingin", whiskey guzzlin" indie rockers Murder By Death are scheduled to play at Off Broadway in May - it"s bound to be a more appropriate atmosphere than if the group performed at the Pageant to the tune of $5 Budweisers.

CHENGDU - Chinese researchers have discovered a new but highly endangered species of snow lotus in the Wolong National Nature Reserve in southwestern province of Sichuan.
The snow lotus, named Saussurea balangshanensis, was spotted in the alpine zone at an altitude of about 4,400 to 4,700 meters in the reserve, said researchers with the Kunming Institute of Botany under the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The plant is quite different from other known species of snow lotus and has a pungently fragrant smell, said Zhang Yazhou, a researcher with the institute.
Researchers and reserve management staff conducted separate investigations and determined that fewer than 500 such plants remain, and the Balang Mountain is the only place the snow lotuses grow. It is therefore extremely endangered, said Zhang.
"The Balang Mountain snow lotus has a very limited colony, which results in a singular genetic feature and makes it extremely vulnerable," he said.
Its habitat is close to a highway so it urgently needs protection, he said.
The Wolong reserve has limited human activity near where the plants grow and is making further plans for conservation, said Duan Zhaogang, an official with the administration of the reserve.identity wristbands ukrubber band braceletsfree wristbands ukblack rubber wristband meaningblue silicone wristbands
