The devil is here.

The advance copies of Devil At The Confluence are coming in batches this week. The earliest pre-orders are being filled and some really nice reviews and mentions are coming out already.

A national retail bookstore has the book listed to ship in September and they are taking pre-orders, but the book will not be available to any of the retail outlets until October 1, 2009.

The first chance to get the book is being saved for St Louisans because it's the city's history and it's the time to celebrate it. 
Here are the first of a number of events where the book will be on sale:

Saturday, Sept. 5 & Sunday, Sept. 6, 2009.
The Big Muddy Blues Festival.

The St Louis Blues Society will be selling books at their booth. These books will benefit the blues society for a number of really important goals that they have in keeping the legacy of the music alive. The supply of books available for the festival weekend is limited, so get your copy early and help a terrific cause at the same time.

Friday, Sept 11, 2009.
Mad Art Gallery proudly presents artwork from Kevin Belford's book Devil at the Confluence: The Pre-War Blues Music of St. Louis, one night only, September 11, 2009.

More info on events later as things get finalized, but we can hint that the book might be available at the Old Webster Blues and Jazz Festival and at the Blues City Deli's street party.
