Gateway to the West Fest Fri. AND Sat., 6:00 p.m. / 1:00 p.m., October 19 AND 20 w/ Death Threat, Backtrack, Expire, The Killer, Dogfight, many many more @ Fubar - $35 By Daniel Hill Gateway to the West Fest's triumphant return last year, which followed a six-year absence, proved once again that St. Louis is still more than capable of hosting its own hardcore punk festival and drawing some big names to boot. This year's line-up doubles down on that promise, bringing to town not just the big but some of the biggest current names in hardcore, from all over the country: Connecticut's Death Threat, Bitter End from Texas, Xibalba from California and New York's Backtrack are just a few of the 30-plus bands on the bill. Road trips to this fest have been planned from destinations all over the Midwest by carloads of hardcore fans; we in St. Louis get to have it in our own backyard. Don't sleep. Two For One: The cost of admission buys you into both days of the fest, so don't lose that wristband moshing on the first day.


Catholic Guilt Sat., 11:00 p.m. October 20 w/ The Pat Sajak Assassins, I, Octopus @ Mangia Italiano - Free By RFT Staff Since early 2007, south-side demolition quartet Catholic Guilt has been in an endless battle against the sound barrier. Over the years, its lineup and style has undergone drastic changes. With early shows conjuring up thoughts of everything from Crass to Swans to Double Leopards, the band's focus has always been an exercise in sonic warfare. Now in its most realized form to date, Catholic Guilt's sound wavers between strident toxic sludge and black-hole dirge. After releasing Postcards From Copper Canyon on cassette through Chicago's Manic Static, the lonesome four are sharpening their claws in anticipation of the release of their first full-length LP.


Arrested Development Sat., 7:00 p.m. October 20 @ 2720 Cherokee - $20 By Kiernan Maletsky A forerunner in early '90s positive-message hip-hop, Arrested Development had a string of Billboard hits on 3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days in the Life Of..., now considered a classic. That came out in 1992, making this year its 20th anniversary. That's what MC Speech and crew will be celebrating in St. Louis, and there are plenty of extra-curriculars planned, including live art, jockeying of both discs and videos, b-boy competitions and on. Hip-hop: Not just turntables and microphones. Four elements, people. Also Released in 1992: The Chronic, Disney's Aladdin and definitely not a certain pun-heavy TV show.


Dysrhythmia Sun., 7:30 p.m. October 21 @ Fubar - $10-$12 By Ryan Wasoba The members of Dysrhythmia have ridiculous pedigrees in the Brooklyn hipster metal scene (which, if you didn't know, totally exists), ranging from drummer Jeff Eber's Vijay Iyer-endorsed math jazz group Zevious to bassist Colin Marston's work alongside Orthrelm's Mick Barr in black metal outfit Krallice. So while its instrumental tracks inspire dislocated jaws from anybody with an inkling of interest in technicality, the band could actually shred much harder. By saving the wails for other groups, Dysrhythmia uses its abilities to compose musical movements that are more listenable than one might expect from a "prog metal jazz post rock power trio." Family Circle: When not playing in Dysrhythmia, Krallice, or Behold...The Arctopus, Colin Marston engineers records for bands like Liturgy, Ghengis Tron and the Men
