Demon Lover 

9 p.m. Friday, November 30. The Heavy Anchor, 5226 Gravois Avenue.

St. Louis has a lot of dudes in bands. Dudes in bands are plentiful. Demon Lover is distinctive because it is populated not just by dudes but by true musicians. Andy Lashier, JJ Hamon and Sam Meyer are all diverse multi-instrumentalists, and the Demon Lover boys make music that is as memorable as it is transcendent. Though the three men are essentially a rock band, the sound they brew is massive and alluring. The music is jazzy but not chaotic. It's trippy but not psychedelic. It's experimental but not tedious. Demon Lover is powerful and jubilant and reflects the weird hybrid sound of the new south-city scene — a mutt mixture of rock, twang, beats and noise.

Roll the Dice: With this band, every show is different and seemingly better than the last. Check it out if you are looking for something fresh.
