MON. APR. 17
@ Livery Company | 9pm | $5
-Period Bomb (Miami, FL)
Resident no-wave cult Skarekrau Radio returns for a show at the newish Livery space on Broadway alongside drag and other performers. Miami's Period Bomb fits right in with the first family of St. Louis skronk, spewing its own brand of noise-punk in support of upcoming LP, Permanently Wet.
WED. APR. 19
@ 3500 Lemp | 9pm | $5 | all ages
-Spirit of the Beehive (Philadelphia, PA)
-Hovvdy (Austin, TX)
Spirit of the Beehive plays loaded rock songs that crack under the weight of heavy, distorted riffing. The band's latest, Pleasure Suck, has songs that range from simple melodic lines to dense and busy dirges. This show was recently moved from the Nest to a space over at the Lemp warehouses.
@ CBGB | 10pm | 21+
-Fried E/M (record release)
With members of Jane Wave, Lumpy and the Dumpers and more, Fried E/M spreads its nuclear juice to the world via a new record. Both bands on this show share time and space with a weekly trivia night at CBGB.
THU. APR. 20
@ The Green Room at KSLU | 9pm | $5 | all ages
-Curved Light (TX)
Producer Peter Tran returns to St. Louis with his project Curved Light, which makes use of modular synthesizer to carve a distinct audiovisual performance. This show actually takes place in a backroom inside St. Louis University's student run radio station, which can be accessed by Grand and Lindell.
FRI. APR. 21
@ Foam | 9pm | $8 | all ages
-Yowie (album release)
Yowie's new record, Synchromysticism, is shaping up to be the band's most popular record to date and for good reason. In the last five years, the trio has managed to funnel its sordid guitar language into an accessible and damn-near danceable mutation of math rock and no-wave. But trying to assign an actual genre to the band is pretty pointless, as the video above shows.
SAT. APR. 22
@ Endless Planets | 12pm | free | all ages
-Ciej & Amir
This event's synthesis is three-fold, falling on Endless Planets' one-year anniversary, Record Store Day and Earth Day all at once. To that end, the day's entertainment is just as interesting: Catch live performances and DJ sets from 12 to 8pm, peep a new exhibition curated by local artist Theresa Moher, shop trunkVNTG clothing and more.
These are just some highlights. Check the sidebar for more!
