BLEAK END AT BERNIE'S
FRANCES WITH WOLVES
at: FLOATING LABORATORIES
4528 Ohio St.
Saint Louis, MO 63111
9PM || $3-5 || BYOB
Welcome to a night of "synthesized anxieties" as the lovely Larva puts it. Kansas City's I LOVE YOU dissolve into lucid psych-pop. GENERATION (Richmond, CA) channel teen angst into synthesizers. Oakland terror reigns supreme with west coast crazies BLEAK END AT BERNIE'S. Catch the ethereal waves that the new duo of Andy K. & Leanna Kaiser are riding on in the dreamy pop act, FRANCES WITH WOLVES (Saint Louis, MO). HALF GAY (Saint Louis, MO), the duo of Mike Staszny & Kevin Harris, destroys your brain waves with riptide rhythms and sonic cacophony.

FRIDAY, JULY 16th:
at: APOP RECORDS
2831 Cherokee St.
Saint Louis, MO 63118
9PM || $5 || BYOB
St. Louis is treated to an evening of lonesome drifter synthesis. 5 solo acts. 5 synths. 5 chances to get faded. You want this. You need this. SKY LIMOUSINE (Chicago, IL) aka Josh Burke returns to Saint Louis with his brand of daisy chain synth action, focusing on generational loss. On tour with SL, are POSITIVE SHADOW & CRIMINALS, two analog trolls on a journey to the green land. Be there. St. Louis' own SORCERESS (Chris Slay - of Dust Bunny, formerly the Pink Pasture) and PULSE TRACKER (Dan Wamhoff - of Dust Bunny / Swamp Kids) enter a cess haze full of undulating loops and swamp wrist tones.

SUPERFUN YEAH YEAH ROCKETSHIP
THE VANILLA BEANS
DJ LIL DADDY REBA MCENTIRE
5226 Gravois Ave.
Saint Louis, MO 63116
9PM (Doors) || $7 || All Ages
Oxford, MS' JUNK CULTURE strolls into Antarctica this weekend. Not quite "Chillwave," not quite trad pop. Just good. Sample based, brain wreckage moves hips into a sexy huddle. Grip it. Local yokal, SUPERFUN YEAH YEAH ROCKETSHIP, extrudes your fears and anxieties to fuel his dance-filled hump party. Truly a sexed up crazy on acid. THE VANILLA BEANS electro/acoustic meanderings, coast on the glitch floor. Get lost. DJ LIL DADDY REBA MCENTIRE (aka Eric Hall) does it all. The nasty way. Yugh. Do it to it.

DJ DOG DICK
NARWHALZ (OF SOUND)
at: CRANKY YELLOW
2847 Cherokee St.
Saint Louis, MO 63118
9PM || $6 || BYOB
Total mind melter tour hits St. Louis with DJ DOG DICK (Max Eisenberg - former Nautical Almanac / Saint Louis Native - Baltimore, MD), SEWN LEATHER (Griffin from Nowhere), and NARWHALZ (OF SOUND) (Richmond, VA). Sewn Leather embarks on a mental war against the masses. Bumpin' bass, blown out beats, and the most amazing lyrics I've heard in the past 5 years. Finally the acid punks are getting jiggy. DJ DOG DICK moves from the hips on this journey. Massive synth rig, and sprained brain jam set. If you like to dance, be here. Last time I saw NARWHALZ, he put a Gameboy into a dog. Gabber-driven electronic psych-out. Glitched the fuck out. Pummeling insaniacs MANIC ZAMBONI open the show with KID MIDI!
