About Us

The Arts STL was founded in August 2017 after the demise of PLAYBACK:stl, the long-running St. Louis-based music and pop culture magazine/website. After the founders of that site decided to cease publication, that site’s Jason Green—a 13-year veteran of all sections of the site and editor of its comic book coverage—decided that the hole that Playback was leaving behind needed to be filled, and if someone was going to do it, it may as well be him.

Featuring writing by numerous longtime Playback staffers, The Arts STL aims to cover the arts in all their forms as they happen in the St. Louis area (as well as the occasional dispatch from points beyond), with dedicated coverage of music, film, comic books, books, and live theatre. We hope you enjoy what you read. Feel free to drop us a line in the comments section at the bottom of any article, or via our contact form. Thank you for reading.
