This Week in St. Louis 6/15/15 - 6/19/15


Destruction Unit (Phoenix, AZ)
Breakout (TX)
Soda Boys
@ The Skatium / 120 Catalan St.
9 p.m. / $10 / all ages

Destruction Unit crams ten tons of harsh noise into raw punk songs, driving repetitive riffs through the dirt (or the sand, they're from the desert). There's a solid duo of hardcore bands with Ruz and the Austin-based band Breakout, while Swearbeam brings the brains behind the Funs, Trauma Harness and Rip-Rap together.

The Melvins
@ The Firebird / 2706 Olive St.
9 p.m. / $20-$22 / all ages

The Melvins have a deep footprint in the metal canon of American music. While a quick Google search could bring up more history than you'd ever want to read, just know that the group brings a kind of sulfurous rock that feels heady but never too overwrought. Recordings are nice, but this band is best heard with real, human ears.


Peter J Woods (Milwaukee, WI)
Dan of Earth (Milwaukee, WI)
Kingston Family Singers
@ Lemp Arts Center / 3301 Lemp Ave.
8 p.m. / $5 / all ages

For years Peter J Woods has ran the Borg Ward, a DIY all-ages space in Milwaukee specializing in noise, experimental and outsider rock. His solo moniker (known in past years as PETE-ZA), is something hard to describe, mostly because he brings a different approach to each performance. Dan of Earth builds a harrowing wall of massive harsh noise. You might know Kingston Family Singers as the noise duo featuring a stuff dog... oh you don't? Modular synth mania flies through a glitched-out stratosphere -- a simulation of a simulation of a simulation. 

Drainolith (Montreal)
DJ Ghost Ice
@ Schlafly Tap Room / 2100 Locust St.
8:30 p.m. / free / all ages

Wolf Eyes might have coined the term "Trip Metal" with its collective tongue stuffed firmly in-cheek, but Drainolith is an ambassador of such music, bringing a rock-vibe to dark beats that can barely breathe under the mass of guitar noise. As the former guitarist of noise-rock luminaries Aids Wolf, Drainolith continues his riff driven brain-fuckery, albeit in a much different format. 


Chain Rank (Boston, MA)
Cardiac Arrest
The Warden
@ Bonerville
9 p.m. / donation$ / all ages

Chain Rank bares the torch of classic hardcore with an earnest energy. While the Boston foursome doesn't break new ground, that really isn't the point. Chords rush out over fierce downbeats with thick, throaty vocals driving the songs. The execution is on point like a well-oiled machine, paying total respect to the form.

The Conformists
Maximum Effort
@ Schlafly Tap room / 2100 Locust St.
9 p.m. / free / all ages

Yowie brings wiry, brain-bending riffs over bizarre beats that work to constantly bait-and-switch. The trio somehow invokes wriggle and dance while throwing the whole avant-rock genre to the wall. In other news, the Conformists are back with original lead singer Mike Benker, while former vocalist Chris Boran moves to replace the old bass player. Lineup changes aside, this band is one of the most complex and engaging bands that could loosely be called "rock." Essential listening.
