St Thomas is not particularly known for its nightlife.  This is more of a beach destination intended for daytime activity.  However, there are dozens of places all over the island; from RED HOOK on the East end to Charlotte Amalie in the middle where you can find guitar players, bands, karaoke bars, jazz clubs and events at places like Yacht Haven Grand outdoor concerts.  Always check the special shows at the Reichhold Center on the campus of the University of the Virgin Islands..  There is little tourist activity at the West end of the island.
