This Week in St. Louis 12/7/15 - 12/13/15


Leggy (Cincinnati, OH)
Arc Flash (Lawrence, KS)
Babe Lords
@ Foam / 3359 S. Jefferson Ave.
10 p.m. / $5 / all ages

Lately, it seems like there's a conference of midwest garage rock happening at Foam every week. This edition brings Leggy, who comes from a city in Ohio that feels a lot like St. Louis, except with more hills. Lawrence's Arc Flash has a name right out of Street Fighter, but they're clearly too cool for that nerdy shit. Babe Lords and Shitstorm hold the local fort down, per usual. 


Golden Pelicans (Orlando, FL)
Bib (NE)
Wet Ones (Kansas City, MO)
Lumpy & the Dumpers
Black Panties
@ Blank Space / 2847 Cherokee St.
9 p.m. / $5-$7 / all ages

This is a TOTAL PUNK records showcase with Orlando's Golden Pelicans (shown in the video above) and two St. Louis reps in Black Panties and Lumpy & the Dumpers. Bib and Wet Ones join this stacked show that demands AT LEAST $7. Don't come in with only a fiver, this isn't 1989 -- account for inflation. 

Bernieman w/ Blight Future + more goes down at 2720 on this same night. Expect bands, burlesque and spoken word by the likes of Stephen Houldsworth among others. 


Staghorn (graphic novel release)
Path of Might
@ Foam / 3359 S. Jefferson Ave.
8:15 p.m. / free / all ages

Staghorn's latest LP has an accompanying graphic novel, which helps relate the record's concept with lush visuals. This show bring heavy, downtrodden metal with emphasis on melody and patient songwriting. 


The Cowboys (Bloomington, IN)
Soda Boys
Barbecue Boys
Smooth Talkin' Perverts
@ Livery Company / 3227 Cherokee St.
9 p.m. / $5 / all ages

Acid Kat presents yet another sloppy punk jammer on a Saturday night. The Livery's low ceilings will help condense all the feedback and thrashy trash can beats into thick waves of catchy rock and roll. Five bands means that this show probably starts on time. So, punk-time is just a catchy thing we should joke about but not actually do.
