-Willis
-Beauty Pageant
-Ezra Gould
-Zwornikins
-Mike Herr
+more

As the lone spotlight for this week, there is no show in St. Louis that we can recommend more than Grownup Music's Block Party. Think of this soiree as a mile marker for a group (headed by the psych-freaks in Kenshiro's) that aims to bring its own brand of "adult contemporary," which translates to noise, outsider music and art in many formats. In collaboration with Milque Toast Bar and 2222 Jefferson, this outdoors event offers sideways pop, solo percussion and several shades of rock with a dance-focused after party. Anytime "Grownup Music Presents" precedes a show, consider it a safe bet.

This Week In St. Louis: Jun. 19 - 25, 2017

MON. JUN. 19


@ Foam | 9pm | all ages
-Shane Parish (Asheville, NC)
-Vernacular String Trio
-Trull/Suen duo

As a member of Ahleuchatistas, Blind Thorns and Doom Ribbons, Shane Parish incorporates the idioms of avant garde, jazz and progressive rock to craft a shapely guitar sound. He weaves between rhythmic flourishes and sharp, jagged passages in a way that feels heavy and theatrical. 

TUE. JUN. 20


@ Gooseberries | 9pm | $8-$12 | all ages
-Bill Nace & Twig Harper
-Zak M

Bill Nace and Twig Harper bring a varied and tense noise performance inside one of south city's most beloved restaurants, Gooseberries. Zak M adds another dimension to the show with his baritone voice and dense guitar arrangements. 

THU. JUN. 22


@ CBGB | 9pm | $5-$7 | 21+
-Dream Probe (Champaign, IL)
-Hard Feelings (Duluth, MN)
-Fried E/M
-Skin Tags

Dream Probe makes the type of vicious punk that reaches in through the ear and squeezes the brain. The requisite riffing and beats slathered in a layer of harsh feedback. The band adds an element of restraint that pays off for a set of songs that seem less nuanced than they really are. 

FRI. JUN. 23


@ CBGB | 9pm | 21+
-Fond Han (NJ)
-Sex Scenes (Milwaukee, WI)
-Shady Bug
-John Beabout
-Bald

Fond Han tricks the listener into hearing sideways noise rock by sounding like a Pile-esque rock outfit at first glance. While setting up the expectation for a melodic release, the band constantly subverts that and makes you wonder if they will or won't control their own brand of chaos. 

SAT. JUN. 24


@ Snuff Film Collective | 7:30pm | $5-$8 | all ages
-An Atomic Whirl (Wichita, KS)
-The Central (Madison, WI)
-B Yr Own Cop!
-Complainer

A cross-section of grunge and Japanese grind, An Atomic Whirl riffs through an unpredictable and weird concoction that ultimately feels solid and sharp throughout. The Central worships at the altar of Mike Patton-esque prog rock, invoking a darker metallic feel while holding down its caustic and scathing songs. The address to this show is not public - hit the FB event for details. 

SUN. JUN. 25


@ RKDE | 5pm | $10
Trav-A-Ganza:
-Pryss (Springfield, IL)
-Lumpy and the Dumpers
-G.N.A.T.
-Ghost Ice
+more

Lumpy, Pryss and several bands throughout the region unite to pay tribute and respect to Pink Sock frontman Travis Hanrahan. This is also the last performance of Pink Sock, who will have a different vocalist for each song. 

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

This Week In St. Louis: June 12 - 18, 2017

TUE. JUN. 13


@ Foam | 9pm | $5-$7 | all ages
-Squelch (Little Rock, AR)
-Natural Velvet (Baltimore, MD)
-Gummy Ache

Squelch bangs its head against the beaten path of searing, lo-fi punk. There's no attempt at reinventing the wheel here -- the band opts to set it on fire and send it tumbling down a rocky hill. Gummy Ache is a new outfit from members of Sundowning and Glued.

WED. JUN. 14


Wed. Jun. 14 @ El Lenador
9pm | $5
-Dane Rousay (San Antonio, TX)
-Blank Thomas
-Mister Ben

San Antonio-native Dane Rousay seems to be in a constant state of touring, hitting St. Louis with a nuanced set of solo percussion. The nomadic drummer doesn't insult the audience with loud, flashy soloing but instead opts to tell a story with a set that flows from quiet and pensive pieces to dense flourishes of sound. 

THU. JUN. 15


@ Kismet | 9pm | $5 | all ages
-Hidden Ritual (TX)
-Trauma Harness
-Concentrator
-Seashine

What makes Hidden Ritual so distinct is its subtle injection of psychedelic riffs inside otherwise surfy songs, which results in a strange vibe that feels dark yet disconnected. Fresh off recording for a new LP, Trauma Harness brings its sculpted post-punk alongside Concentrator and Seashine, two relatively new favorites that have popped up in the last year. 

FRI. JUN. 16


@ CBGB | 9pm | $5 | all ages
-Alouette (Chicago, IL)
-Jane Wave
-Sundowning

Chicago duo Alouette offers stripped down grunge with a hard grip on fuzz and static. Its songs harness a chaotic guitar tone where melodies leak out from under a wall of noise. Jane Wave appears in whatever form Sam Pounders opts for on this night and Sundowning rounds out the show with a tempered take on shoegaze. 

FRI. JUN 16-SAT. JUN. 17


@ The Grove | $15
Riverfront Times Music Showcase:
-Yowie
-Little Big Bangs
-Trauma Harness
-The Stranger
+more

More than 100 bands are crammed into 9 venues on a small strip of Manchester for twelve straight hours of rapid-fire sets. $15 comes out to less than 15 cents an act, but this show is worth the price alone just to see the spectacle of so many bands in one place. Check out the full lineup at rftshowcase.com.
