This Week In St. Louis: Mar. 26 - Apr. 1, 2018

MON. MAR. 26

@ Foam | 9pm | $5 | all ages
-Dark Web (Philadelphia, PA)
-Waste Man (New Orleans, LA)

Reminiscent of dark, down-tempo hardcore with a tendency to tear its own songs to shreds, Philly's Dark Web performs in a way that almost seems effortless. For all its noise, the band stays cold to the touch while letting out a loose movement of sordid punk rock. 

SAT. MAR. 31

@ Kerr Foundation | 9pm | $7-$10
Grownup Music presents:
-NNN Cook (tape release)
-JoAnn McNeil
-Astro Blackus
-DJ Floodgate

Nathan Cook departs from his own Close/Far Recordings label to collaborate with the heads over at Grownup Music for a release that should be as unglued as ever. The event takes advantage of what could possibly be St. Louis' coolest venue in the Kerr Foundation, a multilevel art compound located right off of the riverfront. 


@ Flop House | 9pm
-Frank Hurricane (NY)
-Jewel Eye (PA)
-JoAnn McNeil
-Mother Meat

Frank Hurricane doesn't play songs so much as he tells stories of life on the road along with other inane happenstances. His brand of humor can be wet or dry, and his approach is interwoven with a finger-picking style befitting a true troubadour. 

@ The Sinkhole | 9pm | $8-$10 | all ages
-Don Dietrich and Ben Hall

This sax and drum squalor is propped up by a backbone of static and hum. This duo makes use of post-processing to punctuate, with several exclamation marks, a wall of free jazz that is both busy and vicious in equal measure. This is a rare show for the Sinkhole, a venue typically outfitted with punk and garage rock. 

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