The Best Concerts in St. Louis From October 27 to November 2

Categories: Out Every Night

Carcass - November 2 at Pop's

Cover bands might be shunned outside of their native bar gigs and tribute nights, but Halloween gives us all a chance to be something we're not. On Friday, Melt hosts a full lineup of local punk and psych bands covering a huge range of genres, while We Bite! A Tribute to the Misfits hits the Firebird. Catch the Schwag and its Grateful Dead jams at 2720 on Friday or Saturday.

In keeping with the spirit of the season, I wonder if juggalos will show up to the ICP show on Tuesday clean-faced, wearing freshly pressed polos. Even if you're not a fan of the ghoulish holiday, there's still a lot to love in this week's list of recommended shows.

Meat Puppets - Tuesday, October 21 @ Blueberry Hill.

This week we've got a mix of punk and funk with legendary metal (King Diamond) for good measure. Local post-hardcore players Anodes will kick off their tour on Saturday along with busybodies Blight Future and Heavy Horse. The weather's nice, so get out there before the next polar vortex (or maybe not).
