This Weekend In St. Louis 8/22/14 - 8/24/14


Glitter (CANADA)
Pink Sock

@ Bonerville / Ask around
9 pm / $5 / all ages

Glitter is slimy punk by way of Canada. Catchy riffs come swamped in murky guitar, guttural vocals and trash-can drums. Willis plays in a way that makes you question why you like what you like, and Pink Sock does nihilistic hardcore to remind you that it doesn't matter anyway.


What We Won't See
Wax Fruit

@ The Crack Fox / 1114 Olive Street
8 pm / $8 / 21+

What We Won't See's debut album Blood Covered Winter is a dark, demeaning riptide of industrial punk. The recordings are fairly clean compared to the band's shrill and powerful live sound. Wax Fruit is a tight summation of the past 30 years in synth pop - but dark and almost gothic sounding.


Multicult (MA)
Animal Teeth
Dad Jr.

@ Melt / 2712 Cherokee Street
9 pm / $5 / all ages

At first glance, Multicult might seem to fall into that category of '90s revival bands. This trio is from Baltimore and often plays with better-known grunge contemporaries Dope Body and Roomrunner. But Multicult isn't afraid to get weird and really differs from its brethren by injecting odd, angular riffs. Come on time for the killer opening line-up of local outsider punks.

Punk legend Rikk Agnew comes to Fubar with Pistofficer and local openers Trauma Harness and Maximum Effort.
