This Week In St. Louis: Nov. 12 - 18, 2018

FRI. NOV. 16

@ Foam | 10pm
-B|_ank (Nashville, TN)
-Syna So Pro
-Body Leash

Between moonlighting as R. Stevie Moore's drummer, collaborating with members of Deerhoof and booking shows throughout the Nashville area, William Hicks sharpens his solo endeavors under the name "B|_ank." His merging of percussion, noise and psychedelia results in a buoyant mix that can be as danceable as it is harsh. This is his first solo tour after supporting the Flaming Lips on a long string of shows earlier this year.

@ The Nest | 8:30pm | $5
-Laser Background (Philadephia, PA)
-Shady Bug
-The Tube Socks

The Tube Socks return for a rare performance in support of Laser Background, an exploration of dream pop by Philadelphia-based artist Andy Molholt (also of Speedy Ortiz). His latest EP People Person was just released on November 2nd, and is packed with a polyrhythmic and hook-heavy set of songs.

SAT. NOV. 17

@ Flood Plain | 9:30pm
Rose Raft's Artist-In-Residence Exhibition:

Covers of Smashing Pumpkins songs aside, this is a dark punk band in a love affair with shoegaze. It's no wonder then that Rose Raft, an entity run by the duo known to most as the Funs, picked Waveless to provide a soundtrack for its latest Artist-In-Residence exhibition. Flood Plain is an intimate space to catch the Minneapolis outfit's space-faring sound alongside the stellar works of two photographers and two sculptors.

These are just some highlights. See the side bar for more!
