MON. FEB. 13

+more

In addition to live music from Jave Wavve, Whsky Gngr and more, this line-up features a Solange cover set; poetry readings by Sunni Hutton, Randi W and Eleanor Warshaw; and drag by Mustache Daddy. Valentines drawn by local artists will also be on sale to support the cause.

WED. FEB. 15


@ CBGB | 9pm | 21+
-Tropical Trash (Louisville, KY)
-The Stranger
-Glued
-Demonlover

With a new release out on Load Records -- a label typically known for its noise-rock output -- Tropical Trash brings a heated brand of punk all twisted and distorted. The local lineup offers up a mix of wiry indie-somethings, punk and noisy pop. 

FRI. FEB. 17


Fri. Feb. 17 @ Foam
9pm | $5 | all ages
-Palberta (NY)
-Little Big Bangs
-The Chair Enthusiasts
-Complainer

The women of Palberta make anomalous no-wave songs that recently gained favor in both Pitchfork and Rolling Stone, despite the group's obtuse approach. While Palberta has shared stages with bands such as Guerilla Toss, New England Patriots and Doomsday Student on the east coast, this show is the trio's first in St. Louis. 

SAT. FEB. 18


@ Skate Liborious | 6pm | $10 | all ages
Brinkstock 2:
-Brother Lee and the Leather Jackals
-Bone Roaster
-Grand Inquisitor
-Pink Sock
+more

A slew of bands come together to raise money for the Ryan Brinkmann Skatepark Memorial Fund. Music does technically start at 6, but skaters can arrive as early as 1 to take advantage of the former church's ramps before showgoers crowd the space. If anything, the 7 or so minute reunion of Pink Sock is alone worth the price of admission. 


@ The Luminary | 9pm | $10-$20 | all ages
New Music Circle presents:
-Ikue Mori (NY)
-Nate Wooley (NY)

The first New Music Circle event of 2017 brings Ikue Mori (formerly of '70s no-wave outfit DNA) back to St. Louis alongside trumpeter Nate Wooley for a night of both solo and duo sets by both performers. 

These are just some highlights. Check the sidebar for more!
