Skarekrau Radio
Bruiser Queen
Dad Jr.
Animal Teeth

@ mushmaus / 2700 Cherokee Street

Trashy jams from the Windy City arrive to induce feverish sound. Some of St. Louis' finest in hard and messy rock support White Mystery. The show is stacked so show up early or miss many shreds of harsh guitar.


Jack Topht (Buffalo, NY)
Double Vision
Barely Free Partial Prisoners

@ Blank Space / 2847 Cherokee Street
8 p.m. / $5 / 21+

Jack Topht fires off at everyone with whimsy and a drunken slur. Watch Jack do his awesome raps and ask him about his genuine, real basketball clothes. Barely Free isn't quite rap, noise or dance music. Watch a trashy pile on of genres at Blank Space, a dark and dank place for dirty sound.


Chest Pain (Austin, TX)
Serial Hawk (Seattle, WA)
Nos Bos
Black Panties

@ Black Space / 2847 Cherokee Street
9 p.m. / $5 / 21+

Expect sharp, dark hardcore with stinging guitars and pounding drums. Chest Pain sounds like its namesake, and Serial Hawk provides proper sludge. Nos Bos is punk with bloody knuckles and harsh vocals. Bring ear plugs, or BE A REAL MANNNNN.


Blues Control (Chicago, IL)
Eric Hall

@ Blank Space / 2847 Cherokee Street
8 p.m. / $5 / 21+

Blues Control wrangles crisp guitar riffs over sharply crafted tracks that are built and manipulated in real time. Raglani emerges from his shell to boast blissful modular jams and Eric Hall pushes rolling mounds of vibrant sound.

Flux Bikes (Chicago, IL)
Black James
What We Won't See
Dave Stone

@ Chromozone / Illinois Avenue in South City
9 p.m. / donation$ / all ages

Flux Bikes melts jazz with psychdelics to produce a rhythmic and primal sound. This singular group lives by the bike, touring and performing with the object as a symbol of its own creative mass. Dave Stone wails on powerful sax while Black James brings creepy dance with enigmatic noise behind every beat.


Meat Mist (Kansas City, MO)
Trauma Harness (Tour Kick-Off Show)
Pink Sock

@ mushmaus / 2700 Cherokee Street
8 p.m. / $5 / all ages

Meat Mist occupies the space between noise rock and hardcore with some sort of bloody sludge. Pink Sock is thrashy and bathes in feedback. Come see Trauma Harness off before they venture into the great unknown, never to return again.
