This Week In St. Louis: Feb. 4 - 10, 2019

MON. FEB. 4


@ CBGB | 8pm
-The Noids (Denton, TX)
-Waterproof
-BB Eye

The Noids bring bulletproof hardcore, squeezing dark gnar into mid-tempo movements that last no more than two to three minutes. This show is stacked with a rare set by BB Eye (featuring members of Lumpy, Warm Bodies and more) and St. Louis' own Waterproof, who recently returned from hiatus.

THU. FEB. 7


@ Foam | 9pm | $7
-Bib (NE)
-Q
-Headbutt

The guitar in Bib does a lot of heavy lifting as each riff carries considerable weight. The band has a tendency to shapeshift from song to song, but the general vibe is unmistakably punk with an injection of early metal. On record, the vocals are obscured to great effect, inciting an undercurrent of dread and uncertainty beneath Bib's lumbering sound.

FRI. FEB. 8


@ Tim's Chrome Bar | 9pm | $5
-Huht (EP release)
-DJ Lord Soul

Kraut rock and synth pop find common ground in Huht's pocket dimension of warbling keys and dense, polyrhythmic beats. The trio builds a stacked sound that feels like it's constantly unfolding despite the busy layers. Peel back the band's intricate weaving of melody and percussion as they play two full sets with DJ Lord Soul filling the gaps throughout the night. 

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