Recommended Shows This Weekend 2/8/2013 - 2/10/2013


Doom Town (7" release show)
Pillow Talk
Spending Habits

@ Blank Space / 2847 Cherokee St.
9 p.m. / $5 / 21+

Bring cash for wax, because Doom Town will sling their second vinyl at the show: A split 7” with Black For A Second produced by local label Tower Groove Records. Pillow Talk joins Doom Town in stomping ears with their heavy racket. When hardcore has room for jazz, Pillow Talk fills the void. Expect brainy drumming over strong, noisy rock.


Regret, The Informer (Kansas City, MO)
Trauma Harness

@ The Radskeller / 7895 Watson Rd.
8 p.m. / $5 / all ages

Anodes returns to St. Louis after a nine day tour through the Midwest with Regret, The Informer. Patrons of post-hardcore: Show your support. Laika's pretty green so they're probably new to you, and Trauma Harness is trying to beat out the Minutemen for pure quantity of songs. Go!


Coward (Kansas City, MO)
Shut In
@ Blank Space / 2847 Cherokee St.
9 p.m. / $5 / 21+

Coward is post-rock wrought with feedback and heavy jams. Shut In brings St. Louis-flavored grunge rock with long hair and heavy hitters. The gig was booked on short notice, so expect a surprise or two in the line-up on this night.

Gigs to look out for next week:
Church Whip (FL) at Plush on Monday
Black James and Barely Free Partial Prisoners at Mushmaus on Thursday
Male Bondage (IN) at The Livery on Saturday
