This Week In St. Louis 4/1/14 - 4/6/14


Decide Today (OH)
Divtech (nomadic)
The Night Grinder
Catholic Guilt

@ The Livery / 3211 Cherokee Street
7 p.m. / $5 / 21+

Decide Today features remnants of the Realicide Youth record label. Expect digital blast beats amid screaming - this is an audible interpretation of the downfall of civilization. Catholic Guilt and The Night Grinder both provide their own juxtaposition to the touring acts noisy squalor.


Flesh Control (VA)
Close Your Eyes I'm Changing (NY)
Beauty Pageant
@ Foam / 3359 South Jefferson
8:30 p.m. / $5 / all ages

Creeping electronic ambiance meets even creepier performers. Beauty Pageant is a staple in St. Louis noise, providing a punk rock approach to its free-improv no wave.


Wolf Eyes
Brain Transplant
Self Help

@ Apop Records / 2831 Cherokee Street
9 p.m. / $10 / all ages

Most modern noise artists cite Wolf Eyes as a major influence and/or inspiration. This local line-up is varied with the vibrant electronics of Raglani and the snarling femme-punk of Self Help.


Rob Mazurek / Darin Gray Duo
@ Tavern of Fine Arts / 313 Belt Avenue
10 p.m. / $10-20 suggested donation / 21+

This performance is part of the Artist Reception for Kaja Renka's Infirmary of the Subconscious and will start at 10 p.m. to avoid conflicting with the New Music Circle event happening earlier in the evening. Mazurek and Gray are both experimental legends in their own right, and this performance should be short and sweet, but definitely worth your time.

Check out Claire Chase and the International Contemporary Ensemble earlier in the evening at The Pulitzer Foundation For The Arts.

If you're craving experimental mixed-in with electronica, Oneohtrix Point Never performs with Eric Hall at the Kranzberg.
