Royal Bangs/TigerCity 

9 p.m. Thursday, September 10. Billiken Club, in the Busch Student Center on the campus of Saint Louis University, 20 North Grand Boulevard.

Royal Bangs' latest album, Let It Beep, appears to be having an identity crisis of sorts. Its twelve tracks cover a lot of sonic territory — from super-percussive dance infections ("My Car Is Haunted") to gritty, punk-tinged folk numbers ("Poison Control," "Shit Xmas") and even spaced-out synthesizer experiments ("Conquest II"). But the glue that holds these tunes together is an industrial strength, space-aged polymer composed of slick production and infectious melodies and beats — all of which burrow deep and demand an improvised dance party regardless of where the listener might be. With the support of '80s synth-masters and sexy falsetto-funkists Tigercity rounding out this bill, it should make for a sweat-drenched dance-tastic evening.
