The Best St. Louis Punk / Hardcore Shows in March
March 12 @ FUBAR (Venue side). 8 p.m. $12-$14: The Spits, the Scam and Maximum Effort
The Spits is returning to St. Louis once again. The hauntingly catchy, simplistic Ramones-throwback style that the Spits bring will make you pogo your damn bones off. This will be the Spits' third show in town in the past year, following a ten-year gap between visits. Also on the bill is the self-proclaimed "most hated band in St. Louis," the Scam and conspiracy-core superstars Maximum Effort. Come to FUBAR and ruin one of your favorite T-shirts in this crowd of miscreants.
Also March 12 @ FUBAR (Lounge side). 7 p.m. $8-$10: Homewrecker, Full of Hell, Old Wounds, Everything Went Black and Cathedral Fever
So dirty, gritty pop-punk isn't your thing, or you want to kill time during the opening bands for the Spits. On the lounge side of FUBAR there will be a fast, pissed off, heavy hardcore show going on. Between this show and the Spits, this night is probably going to go down in history as the most smoke machines ever set off at once in FUBAR's short history on this planet. A389 Records' touring workhorses Homewrecker and Full of Hell will be punishing all of those who aren't familiar with the intense, Integrity-derivative hardcore the label is known to champion. New Jersey's Old Wounds, also on the tour, will be punching its brand of Terror-esque modern hardcore into your head. Everything Went Black and Cathedral Fever will be providing the local support..
