This Week in St. Louis 2/1/16 - 2/7/16

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 1


Soda (Gainesville, FL)
The Bubbleheads 
Shitstorm 
Fumer
@ Foam / 3359 S. Jefferson Avenue 
8 p.m. / $5 / all ages
Gainesville's Soda reaches across the board, opting for that catch-all kind of party punk that seems easy to grab onto but the group keeps its songs on the edge with busy, noisy passages. The Bubbleheads released its demo just a few months back and word is, the band is bringing out several new songs in the very near future. Shitstorm and Fumer are both anchors in St. Louis, but if you haven't caught either, this show is as good excuse as any. 

Power Trip from Dallas, Texas is currently on tour with Anthrax and Lamb of God, but the band hits St. Louis on an off-night to play Fubar with Out of Time, Grand Inquisitor and Skinner.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 3


Way Out Weirdo Wednesday #5 featuring 
Monster Sized Monster
St. Michael 
Micaela Mohr 
Drew Gowran 
Jaded Evil Lambs
@ The Way Out Club / 2525 S. Jefferson Avenue 
9 p.m. / free / 21+
David Bell (of the Paradoxal Pterodactyl podcast) pulls the bizarre, inane and obviously weird to the Way Out Club for a monthly gathering of cross-genre brain gnashing and cheap booze. This month mixes classic St. Louis noise acts with stand-up comedy, hip-hop and a solo drum performance by Drew Gowran. 

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 6


Mollot (Toronto, Canada)
Veil 
Q 
Lumpy and the Dumpers
@ Bonerville / Ask Somebody 
9 p.m. / $7 / all ages
The cover of Mollot's tour tape shows an opossum or some kind of rat-thing "making love" with a sledgehammer. In keeping with that theme, Toronto's Mollot sounds equally as twisted, opting for harsh, fast punk inside scuzzy noise and fuzz. The local lineup is a solid primer on south city punk with Lumpy leading the pack. Someone told me Q was breaking up. I guess THEY forgot. We call that progress, compared to what used to happen with hardcore bands in St. Louis: Release a full-length and immediately call it quits.

Captured Planet 
Stephen Favazza 
Eric Hall 
Travis Bursik
@ Beatnik Bob's (inside City Museum) / 701 N 15th Street 
8 p.m. / all ages
Stephen Favazza, the sole player behind Hands and Feet, offers the first of several nights that explore both electronic and experimental artists inside the Beatnik Bob's space upstairs at City Museum. This night's lineup reads Favazza's full name, as opposed to Hands and Feet, because he plans to perform a rare ambient set alongside local purveyors of the genre Travis Bursik and Eric Hall. Captured Planet rounds out the show, kicking off a full month that will feature .e, Golden Curls and many artists from the FarFetched Collective.

This Week in St. Louis 1/25/16 - 1/31/16

THURSDAY, JANUARY 28


Bruxism #13 feat.:
Stone Lobster
Albert Kuo
Louis Wall

@ Schlafly Tap Room / 2100 Locust St.
9 p.m. / free / all ages

Close/Far Collective's bi-monthly series takes root at the Schalfly Tap Room after two years at Foam Coffee & Beer. Stone Lobster combines the proprietor of the collective himself Nathan Cook with Dave Stone and modular synth artist Kevin Harris for an intense trio of electro-acoustic mayhem. Louis Wall builds up percussive swarms in real time, employing his own esoteric approach to build and release tension. Bruxism's move to Schlafly also means that the event no longer costs $5. Admission is free to all. 

FRIDAY, JANUARY 29


Kowabunga! Kid (Champaign, IL)
Trauma Harness
Soda Boys
Sunday Candy
Livery Company / 3227 Cherokee St.
9:30 p.m. / $5

Champaign favorites Kowabunga! Kid takes on poppy punk with a cutting style that comes and goes without wearing thin. There's a distinct vibe between songs, which differs from punk bands of yore that tend to build one general sound and stick with that. Not that Kowabunga! Kid doesn't carve its own niche, it's just that the band isn't beholden to one. 

SATURDAY, JANUARY 30


Weird Vibers (Columbia, MO)
Thoughts Detecting Machines (Chicago, IL)
Stomatopod (Chicago, IL)
Little Big Bangs
Foam / 3359 S. Jefferson Ave.
8 p.m. / all ages

For having "weird" in its name, Weird Vibers from Columbia is a pretty accessible band. The blown-out, loose-fit shoegaze sound permeates the songs, but the band takes a generally darker approach. Three touring acts means that you should scrape the bank for donations, even if the show allows for free admission. Little Big Bangs is the sole local support for the night but well worth the price of whatever admission you choose to pay.
