This Week In St. Louis 9/5/16 - 9/11/16


The Hecks (Chicago, IL)
Trauma Harness
@ Bolozone
9 p.m. / all ages

The Hecks weave between dreamy, shoegazing pop and stringent noise punk with relative ease whilst building cohesive songs that, on paper, just shouldn't work. Trauma Harness returns after a summer-long hiatus and Exitbag brings its harsh bass and drum-based noise rock. 


Evasive Backflip (IL)
Marauder Unit
Mother Meat
CCDS Death Squad
@ Foam / 3359 S. Jefferson Ave.
8:30 p.m. / $5 / all ages

Prog-rock gets tossed into the trash compacter with the trumpet-led Evasive Backflip, a group that sounds as insider as its name might suggest. But you don't need a degree on the inner workings of Zappa or Fripp to dig on this band's busy compositions. Mother Meat will perform a special (mostly) acoustic set with a variety of percussion instruments while Marauder Unit brings Staghorn's post-apocalyptic rock into dark ambient territory. 


Way Out Weirdo Wednesday #12 feat.:
Ghost Ice
Sea Priestess

Counting Coup
Structure Fire

@ Way Out Club / 2525 S. Jefferson Ave.
/ 9 p.m. / free / 21+

This might be the harshest Way Out Weirdo Wednesday of them all, offering one of St. Louis' most celebrated experimental artists, Ghost Ice, along with newcomer Sea Priestess (feat. Sean Burk of Catholic Guilt) among other groups. David Bell of Jaded Evil Lambs hosts this monthly event and often records each set to feature on his blog and podcast, Paradoxal Pterodactyl


Guerilla Toss (NY)
Pill (NY)
Jung Bae Academy
@ Foam / 3359 S. Jefferson Ave.
9 p.m. / $7 / all ages

Guerilla Toss recently moved from Boston to New York and switched out members while carving several polished gems of danceable noise rock. Through the last five years, the band has refined no-wave in a way that feels accessible without sacrificing its harsh riffage. Its Big Apple brethren, Pill, offers a similar style, albeit less layered and slightly more straight-forward.

Drool (Chicago, IL)
Tit for Tat
@ Schlafly Tap Room / 2100 Locust St.
9 p.m. / free / all ages

The video above might sound like an overblown, fuzzed-out mess, but that's kind of an accurate depiction of Drool's dark, fast-paced rock haze. The band's melodic leanings are mostly masked by pedals, yet its solid songwriting still permeates the harsh wall of sound. Plus, the band covers Devo.


Curt Oren (Iowa City, IA)
Nora Petran (Iowa City, IA)
Run-On Sunshine (Tucson, AZ)
Jonathan Heredia
@ Kismet / 3409 Iowa Ave.
9 p.m. / $5 / all ages

Free-jazz saxophonist Curt Oren has been on tour with singer-songwriter Nora Petran for the better part of a month in support of their new collaborative LP. Oren lends backing to Petran's songs through a variety of instruments and interjects with his own singular, frantic approach to the saxophone.
