Ten Things To Do This Weekend: October 22-24
7 Shot Screamers @ Way Out Club
Punk-a-billy faves 7SS haven't done a show in a long, long time; this gig features the golden-age lineup of Mike, Chris, Kevin and Deano. 9:30.
The Conformists @ Vintage Vinyl
The band's new album, None Hundred, is available now. Christian Schaeffer says: "The band's greatest strength is its use of restraint: It knows how and when to unleash a guitar squall and when to cut it teasingly short. The incremental tempo shifts that kick off "Jesus Was a Shitty Carpenter" evince these players' extra-sensory understanding of their truncated rhythms and sharp, stabbing guitar lines. Mike Benker's vocals are clearer this time around, and on a song such as "Swim Home" he's confident to dramatically speak-sing, instead of settling into his usual full-throttle howl." 8 p.m. Free.
*Banner Pilot/The Dopamines @ Cicero's
Pop-punk the way it should be done by Minneapolis' Banner Pilot and Cincinnati's the Dopamines. The Humanoids and the Wifflers are also on the bill. $8. 8:30 p.m.
KDHX Harvest Sessions Grand Finale @ Tower Grove Farmers Market
Adam Reichmann, Pretty Little Empire and Miss Molly Simms and Eric McSpadden will be closing the 2010 season of early-morning musical entertainment. 9:30 a.m. West Pool Pavilion at the Tower Grove Farmers' Market.
Clownvis Presley @ Vintage Vinyl/ Clownvis Spook-tacular @ The Fox Hole
Roll out of bed and mosey on over to Vintage Vinyl at 1 p.m. Under the marquee, America's sweetheart, Clownvis Presley, will be performing. Rumor has it he might be showing up to hte event in a limo, by the way... Later that night, at 11 p.m., Clownvis' Spook-Tacular will be taking place at the Fox Hole at Atomic Cowboy. Performances, a costume contest and more is on the agenda. VV show is free; Spook-tacular is $10.
