Baba Yaga
Strat Trio

@ Mushmaus / 2700 Cherokee St.
8 PM / free / all ages

The first of many monthly noise shows throws down on the dreaded tax day. Grotesque, bizarre and positively creepy vibes float among static and feedback. Scuzzy visuals and overall subversion populate the Mushmaus art-warehouse. This here shindig is free, so check out the seedy underbelly of St. Louis music free-of-charge.

Spelling Bee
Dad Jr.
Yikes Is Right
Rooster Noodle Soup
(Jake Cohen of Barely Free)
@ Secret House Show / 3918 Michigan Ave.
8 PM / $5 suggested donation / all ages

Southern twang invades noisy grunge rock with Brother Gruesome's hard blend of psychedelics. Hard, trashy drums punctuate messy guitar and moaning vocals. More shifty-eyed weirdos from St. Louis open the show, crossing the abrasive and the loud.
