live up to their explosive name with fierce femme-punk and bratty power-pop. They recently recorded an album with Steve Albini, so catch 'em while you can at intimate Lemmons (5800 Gravois; 314-481-4812) on Saturday, March 18, at 9 p.m ... Kiss Me Deadly
doesn't just make you hum that hair-metal-tastic Lita Ford tune; the Montreal band will also conjure the Sugarcubes gothing it up with Siouxsie Sioux when they hit the Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center (3301 Lemp Avenue; 314-771-1096) on Monday, March 20, for just $5.
