If you don't party, don't bother. Also, if you're easily offended, kindly take your ass elsewhere. Dudes Magazine issue 20 is now available to the masses, and this fest right here rings in the new year with the hairiest of the hairy and too many bands to list. Rock 'n Roll by way of weirdos and burnouts alike!

InFest grabs a random sample from every corner of St. Louis music. If you're at all unfamiliar with local music or want a quick refresh on what's happening in and around town, hit up this FREE and ALL AGES shindig. This is the first of a seasonal series.

SUNDAY, JAN. 27


Stonechat
Tiny Moving Parts (Fargo, ND)
Crucial
Laika

@ Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center / 3301 Lemp Ave.
8 p.m. / $5 / all ages

Go stare down Laika during their inaugural show. The new group features members from Iron Hills, Badgerhunt and LzBnz. Tiny Moving Parts drops a hot cup of emo on their pants and Stonechat tears up Pavement style dream-rock. Crucial confuses.

TUESDAY, JAN. 29


PAK (Providence, RI)
Dungeon Broads (Providence, RI)
Ghost Ice
Marble
Blemished Stone

@ Apop Records / 2831 Cherokee St.
8 p.m. / $5 / all ages

If tape loops and swampy sounds aren't your thing, look elsewhere. If you're skeptical on noise, come see Ghost Ice. He's our prophet of synthesized sound and rarely comes out to play. Get ready for a brain tear.

On an unrelated but totally relevant note, Mark Plant (of Masculine Journey) moved to Chicago several months ago. Not content to turn in his punk card, Mark rips with Broken Prayer, a noisy post-punk five-some. Check these sounds:


Starting February 4th, we'll be featuring a weekly comic by way of local artist Curtis Tinsley titled LAZER GUITAR.
