Revolting Cocks 

8 p.m. Sunday, October 4. The Firebird, 2706 Olive Street.

Ministry main man Al Jourgensen launched the electro-rock sex machine Revolting Cocks in 1983, as a trio whose lineup included Front 242's Richard 23. As Ministry fixated on metallic guitars, the 'Cocks concentrated on keyboards and twisted dance beats in throbbing tunes like "Beers, Steers, and Queers," "Hookerbot 3000" and a cover of Rod Stewart's "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?" After a long hiatus, Jourgensen resurrected the group in 2006, but is only appearing on select dates of this tour. (St. Louis isn't one.) Now billed as RevCo, a lineup of players who have done time in Ministry, Prong and Powerman 5000 are running through decadent, thumping dance tracks on this trek, which is billed as "LuBriCaTouR, the wildest, hottest, sexiest, spooge-fest of the year." Special $50 VIP tickets include keepsakes and a post-show meet-and-greet. We'd be surprised if they don't throw in a little tongue, too.
