Jumbling Towers & Lapush

May 29, 2007


If you missed Jumbling Towers with Be Your Own Pet last night, you can head to Lucas School House to see them tonight, when they play with another local band, Lapush. If you haven’t seen Jumbling Towers yet, you definitely should. They sound different from nearly every other band in town.

The Daybreak Boys

May 25, 2007

St. Louis’ The Daybreak Boys are celebrating the release of their debut EP, The Bowery, tonight at The Duck Room with Dozemarypool and John Boy’s Courage. The Daybreak Boys play jangly indie pop with a strong thread of moody 80’s indie rock that was quite the rage earlier this decade with bands like the Kaiser Chiefs and Hot Hot Heat.

MP3:
The Daybreak Boys – Baby, You’re Darling

Captured! By Robots

May 24, 2007


In case you’re not in the dancing mood and don’t plan on heading up to the Duck Room to see !!!, you should head out to Off Broadway TONIGHT, to see Captured! By Robots and St. Louis’ own Riddle of Steel. That’s a solid lineup, and if I wasn’t going to see the greatness that is !!! live, I would definitely be at Off Broadway. This will be the first C!BR show in St. Louis I’ve missed in five years.

MP3:
Captured! By Robots – Ethiopia
