This Week In St. Louis: Mar. 27 - Apr. 2, 2017

TUE. MAR. 28

@ Foam | 8pm | donation$ | all ages
Crisis Nursery benefit:
-A Leaf In the Street (album release)
-Whsky Janetor
-Fragile Farm
-Pono A.M.
-The Stranger

In the last year, songwriter Kaleb Kirby went from composing heady jazz songs in Animal Children to crafting heavy pop oddities with A Leaf In The Street. This night is a culmination of that work with the release of Studies on the "Pocket," the band's debut album. And if the lineup wasn't enticing enough, consider that Crisis Nursery is the beneficiary of this stacked bill.

Francis Maness leads a femme-focused show at Mangia Italiano which collects the efforts of several folk and outsider pop acts. While the bands start in the early evening, expect the event to go late until after 2 a.m. DJs are interspersed throughout the fest, making for a party vibe all night.

-Body Meat (Denver, CO)
-Leaf In the Street
-Blank Thomas

Body Meat toes this strange line between riffy pop and no wave while somehow straddling a sound all its own. The local support might be a perfect mix for the Denver band, who opts to not adhere to any proven style. 

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