The Ten Best Shows in St. Louis This Weekend: March 14 to 16

Saturday (March 15):

Kowabunga! Kid
w/ The Vanilla Beans, Wild Hex, Dem Scientist
@ Cafe Ventana
8 p.m. | $5
Kowabunga! Kid hails from Champaign, Illinois, and plays some punky pop jams. Hear 'em on Bandcamp. (MS)

Catholic Guilt
w/ Crisp Money Legends, Frank Hurricane, Zak M
@ Foam
9 p.m. | $5
We could try to write a description for this epic variety show, but whoever penned the Facebook invitation kicked ass at it: "Um, I know this is a 'coffee shop show,' but forget about that. Remember real parties? Remember abandon, oblivion, the yawning abyss -- when being around other people meant the welcome embrace of friendship and not just the threat of crowds?" (MS)

HEARding Cats Gelatinous Orchestra
w/ Gino Robair
@ William A. Kerr Foundation
8 p.m. | $10-$15
This 75-minute improvisation conversation featuring Gino Robair takes place between veteran experimental musicians. Participating local artist Tory Z Starbuck says, "I am thinking of bringing various species of chameleon lizards to this show and having them lurk around the room." Hmm... (MS)

The Maness Brothers 7" Release
w/ Old Capital Square Dance Club, Oh Yeah Dakota!, Carriage House, Fred Friction, Miss Molly Simms, Guitardog Life
@ Livery Company
7:30 p.m. | $5
Have you seen the cover art for the Maness Brothers' latest? Because it is awesome. (DH)

RFT Music also recommends checking out the Blind Eyes as they play their final show at Off Broadway as well as Kim Richey at Blueberry Hill. More info in the linked previews.

Sunday (March 16):

w/ Bagheera, Jedi Nighties, Cree Rider Family Band, Karate Bikini, Tommy Halloran's Guerilla Swing
@ Off Broadway
7:30 p.m. | $7
This weekend fest featuring local bands, beers, prints and more, wraps up on Sunday after two days of excitement and a fond farewell to the Blind Eyes. (MS)

For another option on Sunday night, check out Everything Went Black opening for hardcore legends Ringworm at the Demo.
