This Week in St. Louis: Mar. 25 - 31, 2019

SAT. MAR. 30

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

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

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)
-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!
