This Week In St. Louis: Apr. 17 – 23, 2017

MON. APR. 17

@ Livery Company | 9pm | $5
-Period Bomb (Miami, FL)
-NNN Cook
-Skarekrau Radio
-Tubby Tom
-Mustache Daddy

Resident no-wave cult Skarekrau Radio returns for a show at the newish Livery space on Broadway alongside drag and other performers. Miami’s Period Bomb fits right in with the first family of St. Louis skronk, spewing its own brand of noise-punk in support of upcoming LP Permanently Wet. 

WED. APR. 19

@ 3500 Lemp | 9pm | $5 | all ages
-Spirit of the Beehive (Philadelphia, PA)
-Hovvdy (Austin, TX)
-Shady Bug
-Persh
-Kilometers Davis

Spirit of the Beehive plays loaded rock songs that crack under the weight of heavy, distorted riffing. The band’s latest, pleasure suck, has songs than range from simple melodic lines to dense and busy dirges. This show was recently moved from the Nest to a space over at the Lemp warehouses. 

@ CBGB | 10pm | 21+
-Fried E/M (record release)
-The Stranger

With members of Jane Wave, Lumpy and the Dumpers and other groups, Fried E/M spreads its nuclear juice to the world via a new record. Both bands on this show share time and space with a weekly trivia night at CBGB.

THU. APR. 20

@ The Green Room at KSLU | 9pm | $5 | all ages
-Curved Light (TX)
-Negative Spaces

Producer Peter Tran returns to St. Louis with his project Curved Light, which makes use of modular synthesizer to carve a distinct audiovisual performance. This show actually takes place in a backroom inside St. Louis University’s student run radio station, which can be accessed by Grand and Lindell.

FRI. APR. 21

@ Foam | 9pm | $8 | all ages
-Yowie (album release)
-Staghorn
-The Conformists
-Complainer

Yowie’s new record Synchromysticism is shaping up to be the band’s most popular record to date and for good reason. In the last five years, the trio has managed to funnel its sordid guitar language into an accessible and damn-near danceable mutation of math rock and no-wave. But trying to assign an actual genre to the band is pretty pointless, as the video above shows.  

These are just some highlights. Check the sidebar for more!
