S.N.A.F.U.'s current tour, coming to St. Louis this week, definitely started off on the wrong foot. At 5 a.m. on the morning of Friday, August 19 the band loaded into its van, prepared to make the drive from its hometown Detroit to Boston for the outing's first date, when, according to the its Facebook page, "our van spilled its guts all over the streets." After hours spent trying to fix the problem, S.N.A.F.U.'s members threw up their hands are rented a van — a sizable and unexpected cost. "We don't do crowd funding, go fund me, or beg for help," the band continued in its post, asking only that fans come to the shows, pay the cover and buy some merch. With all the blistering talent and huge riffs this crossover thrash act is packing, that really isn't a big ask at all.

No Coast, No Problem: A reconstituted Tropical Storm!, St. Louis' only surf-themed thrash band reborn, will open the show.
