The Ten Best Concerts in St. Louis This Weekend: May 16-18

Grieves
w/ SonReal, Fearce Vill
@ The Firebird
8:30 p.m. | $12-$14
Seattle rapper Grieves is signed to Minneapolis' Rhymesayers label, which probably tells you most of what you need to know. Expect heady rhymes, smooth productions and an energetic live show. (DH)

Harvest Sessions
w/ Auset Music Project
@ Tower Grove Farmers' Market
10 a.m. | free
Harvest Sessions kicked off at the market just a couple weeks ago, and the lineup for the season looks strong. Catch everything from rock & roll to soul this summer while shopping fresh produce and absorbing the lively ambiance. (MS)

Laura Jane Grace (of Against Me!)
w/ Big Eyes
@ The Ready Room
8:30 p.m. | $15-$17
Against Me!'s singer has branched out solo, touring in support of January's Transgender Dysphoria Blues, which is about exactly what it says. (DH)

Monogram Suitcase CD Release
w/ Mister Blackcat
@ Melt
9 p.m. | free
You can't hear what Monogram Suitcase sounds like yet, but you'll be able to after this show. The trio releases its debut album -- what better way to get to know them than over some waffles? (MS)

Also on Saturday, check out Nappy Roots at the Gramophone and The Whigs at Off Broadway.

Sunday (May 18):

Grand Maul
w/ Catholic Guilt, Trauma Harness
@ CBGB
8 p.m. | $5
Grand Maul hails from Columbia and plays loud and weird anarcho punk. Have a listen via its Bandcamp page to get a taste. (MS)

Permanent Makeup
w/ Dad Jr., Animal Teeth, Q
@ Los Punk
8:30 p.m. | $5
Permanent Makeup plays some pretty sweet punk avant rock post punk surf (thanks Bandcamp tags). Check it out. Either way, Sunday night looks pretty wild if you can make it out. Just take your pick. (MS)
