Jack Buck 

8 p.m. Saturday, January 14. The Heavy Anchor, 5226 Gravois Avenue.

Jack Buck is a muscular guitar mess, serving up a sweaty blend of angular riffs. The foundation is a meaty rhythm section with fuzzy bass and heavy-hitting down-beats. Fans of Touch and Go Records will feel right at home as Jack Buck invokes the meanest slices of the Jesus Lizard, Killdozer and Shellac. The group pokes around in noise-rock territory while keeping its head above water with classy hooks. Singer Colin Webb screams his guts out so as to compete for space among the intertwined instruments. The syncopated rhythms lend a complex feel to each piece so the songs never tire or wear out.

But You Already Have Plans: Fret not; Jack Buck will be performing at the Gateway Drug Zine release show at Apop Records on Saturday afternoon. The group will then headline the Heavy Anchor alongside Magic City and Coward.
