MDC 

Sunday, September 18; American Czech Educational Center (4690 Lansdowne Avenue)

Millions of Dead Congressmen, Missile-Destroyed Civilization, Multi-Death Corporation, Millions of Damn Christians and Male-Dominated Culture are just a few of the many acronymical faces of MDC, a legendary hardcore punk band whose primary modus operandi is dark, ruthless satire. Their first single, "John Wayne Was a Nazi" -- recorded in 1980 while the Duke's corpse was still warm and MDC were still known as the Stains -- was followed by the 1982 debut album, Millions of Dead Cops. But when he hasn't been behind bars for speed possession, barking frontman Dave Dictor has revealed an almost hippie-like streak, covering Cream's "Politician" and setting a vegan recipe to music on "Tofu Spaghetti." MDC add yet another acronym to the pile with this year's Magnus Dominus Corpus, their first album since 1993's Shades of Brown.

Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8; email [email protected] or call 314-752-8168 for more information.
