Recommended Shows This Weekend 6/28/13 - 6/30/13


Ou Où

@ The Turner Center for the Arts / 3109 Sutton Boulevard
7:30 p.m. / Suggested $5 Donation / All Ages

Ou Où is a duo that blends drum machine and synthesizers through the use of psychedelic sounds. The result is a mixed bag of dance and drone, which typically occupy separate ends of the electronic music spectrum. Ou Où doesn't shy away from harsh, abrasive sounds to make play well rounded set that ranges from ambient to complex and busy. This event will include Yugen's live debut.

Lovebrrd (FL)
Harmoos (MA)
Lions Eat Grass
The Night Grinder
Falsetto Boy
@ Bowen St. (Look Around, Listen Closely)
8 PM / Suggested $5 Donation / All Ages

Lovebrrd provides harsh ambient tunes comprised of feedback, vocals and guitar. Crafting this murky wall of sonic fervor, Lovebrrd's greatest qualities lies in its subtleties. The Night Grinder represents St. Louis noise with his apt control of microphones and noise.


Caddywhompus (LA)
All People (LA)
Lions Eat Grass
@ Blank Space / 2847 Cherokee Street
8 p.m. / $5 / 21+

Caddywhompus pumps straight-up pop rock through a nasty noise rock mesh. The heavy of a P.O.G. pedal marks the two piece's bright, thick guitar sound. Stonechat, Lions Eat Grass and Volcanoes are three of St. Louis's most active duos, so, with the exception of All People, this show is veritable weird-pop two piece fest.

Ex-Cult (TN)
Totally Gay Cop
Better Days
Cross Examination

@ Bonerville / Ask A Punk
9 p.m. / Suggested $5 Donation / All Ages

Ex-Cult features hardcore alumni who push a viral form of rock 'n' roll. Fierce and, at times, spacey, Ex-Cult fires up a tired genre with dancey jams. Totally Gay Cop returns after a lengthy hiatus and Cross Examination will attempt to perform with a severely injured lead singer. Antics will ensue.

If you're more down with the ambient, electronic stuff listed for Friday night, there's a Saturday night option too: Post Performance 2 with Black James, Eric Hall & more.

If all of the above sounds like garbage and you're hankerin' for good ol' music that could only be born here in the midwest: The Whiskey War Festival with Jack Grelle, The Maness Brothers and more.


Neoteric (MA)
Good Luck At The Hog Slaughter
Heavy Horse

@ The Livery / 3211 Cherokee Street
9 p.m. / Suggestion $5 Donation / 21+
Neoteric is math rock with a rough, grungy vibe. Good Luck At The Hog Slaughter brings thoughtful post-punk with a wall of riffing fret-boards and a power-driven rhythm section. Heavy Horse is fierce post-hardcore that feels distinctly mid-western.
