The Best St. Louis Punk/Hardcore Shows in August

Posted By on Wed, Aug 7, 2013 at 9:03 AM


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 pm., 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 (maybe six now? I can't keep up) local punk bands, so that is kind of an inevitability. It does not influence the choosing of these shows.]

Sin Motivo, Times Beach, & Rüz @ Blank Space: Tuesday, August 13 9 p.m./$5

Denton's Sin Motivo has a sound eerily similar to their hometown hype heroes Wiccans, meaning fast, catchy-as-all-hell hardcore punk that can fall apart into a chaotic mess at the drop of a hat. Times Beach got a write up in MRR drawing comparisons to Total Control, so I'm sure they'll give themselves backhanded compliments for that. Seriously, though this band is about to blow up.
