    Civil Disobedience at Scout Bar - A place to feed Clear Lake's passive-aggressive rock needs

    Ludo

    Even though Ludo's theatrical strut "Love Me Dead" screams novelty hit, the Moog-buoyed, pop-rock quintet is no flash in the pan. The St. Louis band formed in early 2003, when ex-theater kid Andrew Volpe and metalhead/meditation enthusiast Tim Ferre...
