The Best St. Louis Punk/Hardcore Shows: October 2013

Posted By on Mon, Oct 7, 2013 at 3:11 AM

  • Ancient press photo from old timey times.
  • The Angry Samoans

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 9pm, 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.]

The Copyrights, The Timmys, Better Days, the Winchester at Fubar October 10 8 p.m. / $10

Chicago's Copyrights just won't stop being productive, making us all look bad. Feel free to come yell this sentiment at its members. Yell that one of their side bands, hardcore punk masterminds Business Papers, should come down here with them next time. Yell whatever you want, as long as you can muster up the guts after a few cheap beers and don't get caught in the hypnotic trance of toe-tapping, pop punk catchiness. The Timmys are great as well; think of a non-political Propaghandi or a less nasally take on NOFX/early '90s Offspring (or anything on Nitro Records in general).
