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


@ Foam | 9pm | $5
-Claire Rousay (San Antonio, TX)

If Rousay's name feels familiar, you might be thinking of the many times this Texas-based percussionist has come through town in recent years. From disparate and gut-wrenching sounds to bright and hyperactive pitter-patter, Claire Rousay's expansive range is matched only by the varied local lineup. 


@ Foam | 9pm | $5 | all ages
-Red Sea (Atlanta, GA)
-Shady Bug (LP release)
-Yuppy (EP release)

Red Sea's defracted riffs and full-bodied vocals carry the band's brand of prismatic indie rock. In addition to this Atlanta outfit, St. Louis is here in full force with Tonina (who made Barack Obama's best of 2018 list) and a dual release show by both Shady Bug and Yuppy.

@ Treffpunkt | 9pm | $5-$7
-Grün Wasser (Chicago, IL)
-Sea Priestess
-Tomorrow's Corpse
-Crim Dolla Cray
-DJ Ghost Ice

Grün Wasser makes cold industrial songs fit for a nuclear winter. Their most recent LP, Predator/Prey, shows the Chicago duo in full effect with dense, warbling tones and kaleidoscopic walls of synth. Stringent beats bring a signature punchiness to the sound, punctuated by a guttural vocal approach that cuts deep. 

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