This Week In St. Louis: Feb. 11 - 17, 2019

FRI. FEB. 15

@ El Lenador | 8pm | $5 | 21+
-Ripped Genes (Columbia, MO)
-Dank Fizzer
-Sloopy McCoy

Ripped Genes builds up slow burning songs that still feel as if they're moving in slow motion. And while that might seem a little long-winded, the Columbia outfit incorporates this nuanced drone into its indie rock in an inventive way. As they wind down, each song feels well-traveled with a subtle sense of progression. 

SAT. FEB. 16

@ Fellowship STL | 8pm | $10
Drummers Only:
-Sowande Mustakeem
-Dee Ball
-Shawn Durham
-Kaleb Kirby
+many more

While we don't brand any show as a "Wrong Division" event, we do help organize Drummers Only, an annual drum installation with short sets from area percussionists. This is far from a drum circle, as each performer presents their own 5-15 minute set with a wide range of styles, disciplines and skill levels. This edition of Drummers Only is a benefit for Fellowship STL (formerly Treffpunkt), a new space aiming to serve the Cherokee Street neighborhood. 

SUN. FEB. 17

@ Foam | 1pm | donation$
-Frankie Valet
-Golden Curls
-Ronnie Rogers
+many more

The gofundme page for Foam has many more details about the venue and its current situation, but the gist is that Foam and company are raising funds to secure their future. This is the best benefit show the space could ask for with a long lineup of local favorites that lasts all day and night. 

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