This Week In St. Louis: Feb. 6 - 12, 2017


@ Foam | 9pm | $5 | all ages
-Reaches (Brooklyn, NY)
-Wax Fruit
-Ethik's Mind

Reaches (formerly known as I Love You) offers a buoyant brand of wobbly pop punctuated by tumbling beats. As one of St. Louis' best kept secrets, Wax Fruit lays down dark shades of synth with subtle use of dual vocals. 


@ The Sinkhole | 9pm | $5
-Modern Convenience (Nashville, TN)
-Sweat Shoppe
-Fried EM

From Memphis to Nashville, Modern Convenience has been a long-standing punk outfit for several years, injecting elements of surf and classic rock'n'roll into its set of songs. The local lineup offers St. Louis stalwarts in Shitstorm and two bands that popped up in the last year: Fried EM and Sweat Shoppe. 

SAT. FEB. 11

@ The Sinkhole | 9pm | free | all ages
-Anodes (7" release)
-Handsaw (IL)
-Alan Smithee

Anodes has long since made its mark on post-hardcore in St. Louis (and the midwest for that matter) with intricate songs carried by coarse riffing and a jazzy rhythm section. Grab the new 7" and catch the band's first show in more than a year. 

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