Are you sick of being responsible? Does it annoy you to have to follow rules or be pro-social? Do you like basements? Well, if you are a goofy, degenerate weirdo who doesn't quite fit in anywhere else, you might consider our city's hardcore/punk shows.Your underlying anger problems can be brought out to their fullest potential (in a positive way). These are my recommendations for great local and national bands that don't play five-minute (marathon!) songs or remind you about drink specials. General rule of thumb: If you have five bucks and can show up by 9 p.m., then it's go time in the pit. One, two, fuck you!
[Disclosure: The author of this article is in bands, some of which will be playing some the following shows. But the author of this article is in five local punk bands, so that is kind of an inevitability. It does not influence the choosing of these shows.]
Hey weirdo, sad or mad about something? Broke as a joke? Well this is one hell of a local FREE pop-punk showcase to drive your pain away. These veterans are coming together to play some of the catchiest punk rock songs in the Missouri/Illinois area. Breakmouth Annie will probably have its brand new split" with the Winchester -- first new recording since its 2012 demo.
