This Week In St. Louis: Apr. 29 - May 5, 2019

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
