The Best St. Louis Punk/Hardcore Shows: April 2014
This is how all flyers should look, detail-wise.
This is the party to attend if you are a drunk music nerd. You can buy mile-long list of rare RSD releases, tuck them away in your car and get drunk on Cherokee Street while bands play all day long. The lineup spans all the genres a subculture music dork could ask for, too.
Backslider's new LP Consequences crushes bones to bits
Backslider, Shaved Women, Life Like, the Warden @ CBGB
This show will be brimming with the meanest riffs in town. Who wants to take turns guessing which band's singer will come the closest to bleeding/sweating/dying of exhuastion? Philadelphia's Backslider is stopping off on south Grand to challenge STL DIY to good ol' fashioned anger contest. The band is top-tier fast, hardcore punk and Philadelphia is one of our best sister cities, covered in garbage, drugs and morons looking to have good times in basements/dive bars. Let's give 'em a hell of a welcome to Nellyville.
