The F Yeah Tour 

8 p.m. Monday, June 30. The Bluebird, 2706 Olive Street

The Fuck Yeah Fest was born in Los Angeles five years ago and has become an anticipated event each year, transforming Los Angeles' Echo Park into an artistic playground where concertgoers see a menagerie of bands, comedy and spoken word. But this year, organizers Keith Morris (Circle Jerks) and Sean Carlson have finally realized their vision of taking the fest on the road and sharing the utter madness with other parts of the country. The first-ever F Yeah Tour will visit 27 cities this summer, packing artists and gear onto a 44-passenger school bus fueled by vegetable oil. St. Louis' date will be one of only three on the tour that will feature spoken word by Morris himself. Musical highlights will include the freak-rock spaz-outs of Monotonix, a Tel Aviv band continuing its assault on the United States since releasing its Body Language EP earlier this year on Drag City. The band's buzz-saw riffs and vocalist Ami Shalev's maniacal theatrics and stage banter are becoming legendary — and should be the perfect end to this offbeat collage of entertainment, especially since Team Robespierre and Crystal Antlers are also performing.
