Bad Side Monday, September 8 w/ Life Like, Q, Ruz @ Melt 8 p.m. | $5 By Jimmy Eberle From "The Best St. Louis Punk/Hardcore Shows: September 2014": Philadelphia's Bad Side is coming through on a Monday night just to make our riverside blood boil. Don't be a wimp just because you spent all weekend partying at that one fest -- hell, we'll all have forgotten about that by the next day anyway. What better way to shake off those decrepit, tainted brain cells than by eating some waffles and puking them out on your pals in the pit? For real though, Bad Side plays creepy, fast hardcore that will take your wallet and tell you your knives suck. Make Cherokee street get weird or else they'll be back -- they know where we live!

Waveless Tuesday, September 9 w/ Kisser @ CBGB 9 p.m. | $5 By Mabel Suen Waveless hails from Minneapolis and plays languid, impactive shoegaze made by musicians primed by punk rock. With song titles like "Nausea" and "Lucid Nightmare," listeners can expect the band's tunes to sweep and sway with emotional weight. The sound gets filled out by warm, fuzzy guitar and dual male and female vocals doused with a heavy hand of reverb. It's music to meld into.

Broncho Wednesday, September 10 w/ Low Litas, Bug Chaser @ The Firebird 8:30 p.m. | $10 By Christian Schaeffer Local show-goers are probably at least familiar with Broncho's name by now, if not its psych-pop slurry. The band makes regular stops in St. Louis, and its next one will be in anticipation of the forthcoming Just Enough Hip To Be Woman, due out next week. The Oklahoma-based quartet shares some of the hazy garage-rock headspace with bands like the Allah-Las and Thee Oh Sees, with enough hooks and tossed-off melodies to make compelling rock & roll. Lead single "Class Historian" is a particularly sticky piece of bubble-gum, complete with a cooing, wordless chorus. Local heroes Bug Chaser will open the show, so make sure to arrive on time.
