The Spits

8 p.m. Friday, March 9. The Fox Hole at Atomic Cowboy, 4140 Manchester Avenue.

The Spits

The Spits is long overdue for a St. Louis show. In its ten years of existence as a band, Seattle's premier purveyor of "Punk for the People" has never played in town. It is fitting, then, that it finally comes through for local hardcore/punk promoter Rob Ruzicka's birthday show — after all, when Ruzicka's birthday brought us New York's hardcore legend the Abused two years ago, it damn near sold out Fubar. Fans of fun, infectious garage-punk à la the Ramones will feel right at home within the world of the Spits, whose dirty punk-rock sound is often accompanied by the band members' propensity to wear costumes onstage, occasionally constructed out of toilet paper.
