This Week In St. Louis: Jun. 3 - 9, 2019

MON. JUN. 3


@ B-Side | 7pm | $5
-Jackal (FL)
-Speed (Kansas City, MO)
-Prism #1
-Soulcraft

Jackal blasts through a dark and guttural set of breakneck punk. The band brings a level of pure energy that propels each song, giving every chord a frantic feel. Their tourmates in Speed are pretty straightforward about what they bring to the table - a headrush of hardcore. 

THU. JUN. 6


@ Marsh | 8pm | $5-$7
-Mezzanine Swimmers (NY)
-Blank Thomas
-Big Step

Mezzanine Swimmers has been through town before, but the New York-based solo artist has been at his best in recent months. Last year's Black Cat in Heat was an exploration of rotten pop mixed with drone and static-soaked loops, and his current live set seems to dive even deeper into that deranged sound. 

FRI. JUN. 7


@ Foam | 9pm | $5-$7
-Thirdface (Nashville, TN)
-Waterproof
-Skin Tags

As metallic and sharp as Thirdface sounds, the band is wound super tight. You could call this punk, but the Nashville crew might not fit everyone's definition just right. The video above will give a general vibe of what to expect, but this is the kind of band that comes at you differently live. 

These are just some highlights. See the side bar for more!

This Week In St. Louis: May 20 - 26, 2019

THU. MAY 23


@ Foam | 9pm | $10/$13 | all ages
-The Spirit of the Beehive (Philadelphia, PA)
-Strange Ranger (Philadelphia, PA)
-Camp Counselor
-Frankie Valet
-Joss Barton

The Spirit of the Beehive blends shoegazey pop with an indie-rock pace. The gain seems dialed back for a cleaner blend of strings, which clearly brightens all the rhythmic interplay in the guitars. While they're not minimalist, the band does take a less-is-more attitude, opting for a constant sense of dynamics. It's the kind of approach that pays off big in a live setting and Foam's more intimate space is the best place to hear them.

FRI. MAY 24


@ The Record Space | 7pm | $7 | all ages
-Laffing Gas (IN)
-Public Acid (NC)
-Q
-Newt Patrol

It's hard to beat a setting like the Record Space's arcade-filled record shop for a show. Laffing Gas' ripping punk spins out and changes direction on a whim, but everything is kept together by solid downbeats. Tourmates Public Acid bring a darker vibe with a ton of quick songs that clock in right around a minute. 

SAT. MAY 25


@ Off Broadway | 8pm | all ages
New Music Circle presents:
-Joshua Abrams & Natural Information Society (Chicago, IL)
-Bitchin Bajas (Chicago, IL)

The combination of Joshua Abrams' Natural Information Society and Bitchin Bajas is sure to make for a dense, slow-burner of a set as repetitions are used for an almost hypnotic effect. Off Broadway has been host to some of the more lively New Music Circle shows and this will be no different as the St. Louis institution caps off 60 years of amazing shows. 

These are just some highlights. See the side bar for more!

This Week In St. Louis: May 13 - 19, 2019

MON. MAY 13


@ Foam | 9:30pm | $12/$15 | all ages
-Old Time Relijun (WA)
-Plant Mom
-Hushgush

You might know Arrington de Dionyso as the artist targeted by the Pizzagate Conspiracy or even his own work as a solo saxophonist, but he's led prolific bands dating back to the '90s. Old Time Relijun is maybe his most renowned, marrying post-punk, no wave and experimental rock for a lush yet loose set that constantly peaks. Hushgush plays one of its last shows before two of its members relocate to Chicago, and Plant Mom performs for the first (and final) time, featuring members of Shady Bug, Yuppy and more. 

SUN. MAY 19


Sun. May 19 @ CBGB
8pm | $5-$7
-Fried Egg (VA)
-Prism 
#1
-Nibiru
A solid three-band show at CBGB is hard to beat, even on this strangely busy Sunday. Fried Egg hits especially hard with its deranged brand of frantic punk, leaving little to the imagination. Prism #1 is an equally blunt band with a more frenetic vibe while Nibiru brings a pop approach that feels both rigid and loose. 

SUN. MAY 19


@ The Nest | 8pm | $5
-Wild Firth (MN)
-Star Belly
-Soft Sweat

Wild Firth's repetitive rock and roll phrases open into these wide expanses where riffs have room to loop and move around. It all makes for a dramatic progression that's delivered in a laid back but not lazy way. While the Minneapolis-natives sort of teeter on pop, they have much more in common with a kraut-rock band.

These are just some highlights. See the side bar for more!

This Week In St. Louis: May 6 - 12, 2019

MON. MAY 6


@ Galeria Obscura | $5 | 9pm
-Jordan Reyes (Chicago, IL)
-Dolor Portion
-Mark Plant Solo Noise Project
-nebulosa

You might know Jordan Reyes from their part in ONO, Chicago's groundbreaking collective that is equal parts psychedelic and psychic. Reyes' solo work unfolds with haunting synths and an attuned approach to texture. Progression is key here, as can be heard on the artist's most recent release, Close. The venue for this one is Galeria Obscura, which you might already know as the cozy performance space connected to The Juice on Cherokee Street. 

FRI. MAY 10


@ The Shrub | 9pm | $5
-Pigments (OK)
-People Zoo
-Nibiru
-Soft Sweat

Pigments' swirly pop rock comes dressed in thick layers of delay and reverb. The Oklahoma City outfit is able to make space for its hooky riffs, pulling off polished pop gems while still reveling in a lush guitar tone. Everything works to serve the band's sound, which marries strong execution with a laid-back vibe. 

SAT. MAY 11


@ Foam | 9pm | $7
-Musclegoose (Fayetteville, AR)
-The Wirms (Fayetteville, AR)
-Big Whoop
-Skin Tags

Two hallmarks of Fayetteville's punk scene scene hit St. Louis as part of a two-week trip to spread the bands' DIY gospel. It's a shame that this tour preempts the release of Musclegoose's upcoming 7" (which the band lovingly refers to as "5 fresh hot turds"), but maybe they'll have a few early copies. Big Whoop sets have become a rarity in St. Louis, so their spot on the show is alone worth the price of admission. 

SUN. MAY 12


@ Foam | 8pm | $8 | all ages
-Slow Mass (Chicago, IL)
-Shady Bug
-Spirits Having Fun
-Le'Ponds

It's rare that a band's name so deftly describes its sound, but here we are with Slow Mass, an anti-pop juggernaut of indie rock with quite the history. From touring with mewithoutyou last November to starting this tour in support of La Dispute, Slow Mass continues to grow, picking up detritus from each city the band passes through. 

These are just some highlights. See the side bar for more!

TUE. APR. 30


@ CBGB | 9pm
-Sonny Falls (Chicago, IL)
-Phony (Chicago, IL)
-Swollen
-Ronnie Rogers

It's hard not to love Sonny Falls and their hooky, infectious and catchy set of garage rock tunes. Also along for the ride is Chicago outfit Phony - a new group from the same brains behind New Orleans band Donovan Wolfington. Expect a night of sidewinding indie rock that paves new paths through the genre. 

THU. MAY 2


@ CBGB | 8pm | $7-$10
-Cell (Montreal, Quebec)
-Cpu Rave (Montreal, Quebec)
-Dentist
-Kiki
-Headbutt

Following up on last week's solid combo of punk shows is a duo of d-beat bands from Montreal. Cell's hyperactive hardcore is dressed in a sinewy mix of guitar gnar and precise riffing. CPU Rave comes at you fast with an wall of aural animosity. The trio of locals wave St. Louis' freak flag high, which is no small feat considering how weird we really are here.  

These are just some highlights. See the side bar for more

This Week In St. Louis: Apr. 22 - 28, 2019

MON. APR. 22


@ Foam | 8pm | $7 | all ages
-Blessed (British Columbia)
-Shady Bug
-DJ Mark Plant

Blessed can almost feel like a different band from release to release. The Canadian outfit has been slowly injecting post-punk into their whirlwind indie rock for years and their new record shows a refined approach. "Salt" dropped earlier this month, proving that Blessed is an artful group that continues to progress while building winding roads of understated complexity. This two-band bill also features DJ Mark Plant (of Nibiru, Mark Plant Solo Noise Project and more). 

WED. APR. 24


@ Rootwad Park | 7pm
-Nag (Decatur, GA)
-Lip (Baltimore, MD)
-Pineapple RNR

Nag and Lip are both used to being part of the same package. Space Taker Sounds released a split 7" between the pair roughly one year ago, and this tour is just another reminder of why these two work so well together. For the uninitiated, both bands offer up their own infectiously catchy brands of punk with Nag leaning into noise and Lip peddling post-punk. With Pineapple RNR on board, it's a can't-miss trio powered by a generator on the riverfront. 

SAT. APR. 27


@ El Lenador | 8pm | $10
-M.A.Z.E. (Japan)
-Science Man (Buffalo, NY)
-BB Eye
-Trauma Harness
-Shux
-G.N.A.T.

The hits keep coming this week with Japan's M.A.Z.E., a band that teeters on early no-wave with a vocal approach that melts into wiry guitar and squalor. Science Man from Buffalo makes razor sharp punk that lives and dies in the garage as each song carries a frantic pace. You can feel the anxiety in these riffs, which culminates with a dark and unnerving vibe. 

SUN. APR. 28


@ CBGB | 9pm | $5-$10
-Scrunchies (MN)
-Sloopy McCoy
-Kids

Scrunchies builds a thick wall of fuzz alongside an airtight rhythm section. The dual vocals work as a punctuation mark to songs that communicate in a very straightforward way, pulling from riot grrrl past while still feeling totally distinct. This Minneapolis crew continues on its own path, blazing new trails roughly a year removed from its most recent release, Stunner. 

These are just some highlights. See the side bar for more!

SAT. APR. 20


@ Kerr Foundation | 8pm | $7-$10
-Pedestrian Deposit (Los Angeles, CA)
-Nadir Smith
-Dave Stone
-DJ Tiffany Minx

While the LA-based duo of Pedestrian Deposit sits firmly in the harsh noise genre, the pair's approach to performance art has garnered plenty of renown. Local sax legend Dave Stone plays his last local gig for the foreseeable future before he departs the city. A diverse bill floods the multi-level Kerr Foundation for a noisy spring fling of a night.

SUN. APR. 21


@ Foam | 9pm | free
NOiSETTE:
-Aiko Tsuchida
-Beauty Pageant
-Big Step
-Drew Gowran Ensemble
-Ra Child
-Stone Hen

The latest iteration of the NOiSE series by Mr. Ben (of Freezerburn Zine, Beauty Pageant) brings back a recurring cast while including a few new faces to round out a marathon of experimental music. Of special note on this show is percussionist Drew Gowran, who offers up a fully-fledged ensemble in place of his regular solo sound meditations. 

These are just some highlights. See the side bar for more!

@ Foam | 9pm | $7-$10
-Tatsuya Nakatani + Assif Tsahar
-NNN Cook + JoAnn McNeil
-Fuck Lungs

You might remember Tatsuya Nakatani from his immersive Nakatani Gong Orchestra, and the Japanese percussionist returns to St. Louis in a duo with Israeli saxophonist Assif Tsahar. The two have been collaborating together for two decades, using extended technique to explore experimental jazz and freeform music. This night of duos is rounded out by a rare live collaboration of NNN Cook and ambient artist JoAnn McNeil.


@ The Ready Room
8pm | $10/$13 | all ages
-Special Interest (New Orleans, LA)
-Boy Harsher (MA)
-DJ Ghost Ice

Boy Harsher is the obvious headliner here, but Special Interest is no less a must see. Rough-edged industrial beats lay a bedrock for shrill riffs and an unrelenting vocal assault. The New Orleans band unwinds in real time, staying just tight enough to evoke no-wave vibes. 

WED. APR. 10


@ Pizza Head | 9pm | free | all ages
-Hotline TNT (MN)
-Nibiru

Last time Hotline TNT came to town, we called the band a live manifestation of the first Tony Hawk Pro Skater soundtrack (Playstation version, of course). So that alone makes them a perfect fit to play a free punk show at a pizza joint. 

SAT. APR. 13


Sat. Apr. 13 @ The Record Space

FRI. APR. 5


@ The Shrub | 9pm | $5
-Allegra (Philadelphia, PA)
-Fine (Providence, RI)
-Sloopy McCoy
-American Poetry Club

Allegra's sugary sweet sound is made up of polyrhythms with a complex crosshatch of textures. The whole band is wound tight, squeezing out syncopated beats that propel each song with a jazzy vibe. Tourmates Fine boast an unapologetic brand of queercore that spiritually rhymes with heavy '90s grunge.


@ Foam | 9pm | $7-$10
-Hikes (Austin, TX)
-Jr. Clooney
-Pono Am
-18andCounting & TheOnlyEnsemble
-Ryan Wasoba

Whether it's intentional or just a consequence of their clean and precise approach to math rock, Hikes' set feels much like a live soundtrack. The songs progress seamlessly while moving at a breakneck pace, blending peaks and valleys into an ongoing ripple of warbling guitars, all dense with melody. 

SAT. APR. 6


@ Foam | 9pm | $7
-Buddy Crime (Louisville, KY)
-Net (Oklahoma City, OK)
-Sea Priestess
-Trauma Harness

In a way, Louisville's Buddy Crime is the perfect middleground on a show with St. Louis post-punk torchbearers Trauma Harness and the space-faring Sea Priestess. Buddy Crime pours syrupy synths over clangy industrial beats for a dark pop odyssey. A late addition to the show, Oklahoma City's Net brings a circuit-bent set of cyberpunk rippers.

These are just some highlights. See the side bar for more!

@ Foam | 9pm | $7
-Moodie Black (MN)
-Teacup Dragun
-Wamhoda

Noise rock? Moodie Black calls itself "noiserap" and it's easy to see why. Lumbering synth runs adjacent to guitar noise while tense beats weave between the two, It's a jagged hip-hop odyssey that rarely stops for air, exhausting a range of tones and textures in the process. 


@ The Nest | 8pm | donation$
-Gender Confetti (Madison, WI)
-Dumpster Dick (Madison, WI)
-Sean Green (Chicago, IL)
-Cranky Yellow
-Starbelly

There's no pretense in Gender Confetti's brand of upbeat power pop. Elyse Clouthier and Sylvia Johnson ride the same psychic wavelength as they play propulsive and melodic punk. And don't sleep on Dumpster Dick, a post-hardcore outfit made up of all trans, all queer folks. 


@ 720 N. 1st | 8pm | $5
-Forest Management (Chicago, IL)
-Faithful
-Danielle Williams
-Head Dress

Those looking for ambient and deep listening can find a lush spectrum of sound throughout Forest Management's discography. The bandcamp is a trove of exploratory music that feels distinct and engrossing. Chicago native John Daniel comes to St. Louis on the heels of Drift, a CD re-release of a digital album he recorded to help himself sleep. 

These are just some highlights. See the side bar for more!
