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 p.m., then it's go time in the pit. One, two, fuck you!

Enabler, Call of The Void, Everything Went Black, Path of Might at the Demo February 7th 8 p.m./$10

Once again, one of Milwaukee's best (aha! Get it?), Enabler, is coming through St. Louis with new jams from last year's La Fin Absolue Du Monde LP; this time the support is provided by Denver's Call of the Void. Now, it would be a huge mistake to write off Enabler as "that band that the drummer of Fall Out Boy was in a while ago." One, because you aren't going to find a more proficient hybrid of Converge and Tragedy in the Midwest, and two, because Andy Hurley hasn't been involved with the band for a long time. Yes, two or three years is an eternity in band/tour years. Plus, EWB's new stuff will tear your asshole's head off. Find more credible excuses if you want to be a poser and miss out on this show.
