This weekend, locals the Old Souls Revival and Emily Wallace release new albums, Weird Fest stirs up Foam, and blues regulars work together to raise some funds for pups. Besides that, check out some options at newer spots hosting shows in town including the Blind Tiger and No Coast's new location in Tower Grove South. More on these recommendations and more after the jump.
Friday (March 7):
Emily Wallace CD Release w/ Cold Hearted Strangers, Isatis @ The Gramophone 8:30 p.m. | $10 A fourteen-year veteran of the St. Louis music community, Emily Wallace has played cover sets at bars all over town, but insists that her original material is her real passion. Pick up the singer-songwriter's new self-titled EP at the show. (DH)
King Buzzo of Melvins @ Fubar 9:30 p.m. | $13-$15 Buzz Osbourne, the curly-fro coiffed main man of Melvins, embarks on a special solo tour. Expect plenty of his trademark metal shredding on an acoustic guitar. (MS)
The Old Souls Revival CD Release w/ The Wise Bros, Blackwater '64 @ Stagger Inn Again 10 p.m. | $5 The Old Souls Revival plays rootsy indie rock. Check 'em out on Bandcamp and pick up a physical copy of their latest album, Common Ground, at the show. (MS)
Weird Fest w/ 32 pc Vintage Party Set, Animal Teeth, Willis, The Night Grinder, Beauty Pageant, Tiger Rider, Skull @ Foam 6:30 p.m. | $5 Subversive sounds will fill the air at Weird Fest. $5 buys you more than your fair share of bands, offering plenty of bang for your buck. Make sure to check out Animal Teeth, too, for your does of punk rock weirdness. (DH)
White Denim w/ The Districts @ The Firebird 8:30 p.m. | $13-$15 Honestly, this band pull from so many different genres and styles of music that it would just be easier for you to have a listen yourself than for me to try and describe it to you with a long list of hyphenated adjectives. So do that, already. (DH)
For other options on Friday night, check out some previews from earlier this week, including our feature on a punk fundraiser show for Peat Henry. Also, Keller Williams plays at the Pageant and the FarFetched crew takes over Kranzberg Arts Center to tell the story behind Prologue III -- get the Homespun review here.
