Three To See

6—There is nothing more satisfying than finding a young, creative local band that can delight teenagers and annoy parents. Armed with a loud volume and plenty of profanity, this industrial-goth band are pretty much a parent’s nightmare multiplied by six. They have a ferocious sound that turns two synthesizers and a guitar into dangerous weapons, as opposed to the more mellow ’80s sounds often heard on the radio. The sound is aggressive and original, and the band’s live show is so full of energy, it’s hard not to be drawn in. To add a visual effect to their set, they have TV screens on stage playing clips of popular horror movies. Fans of exciting live shows have nothing to fear; 6 is here.

Somnia—It makes sense that this band’s CD is titled The Rock EP, because over the past year, Somnia has really developed into a solid and entertaining act. This four-piece, guitar-based group has all the catchy hooks and memorable stage antics to become a national act. Singer/bassist Aaron Popp has a strong stage presence that sparks so much energy in audiences as to use club floors as trampolines and sing along with the catchy songs. Somnia is a local band that proves the St. Louis music scene is far from asleep.

7 Shot Screamers—7 Shot Screamers are a young band with a unique sound that blends rockabilly and punk rock to create a lively set sure to leave audience members screaming for more. The band has a charismatic lead singer who puts everything he has into the show and comes across like he’s ready for MTV. His showmanship is so strong and the band’s sound so distinct, it’s well worth it your time to check them out. I actually missed their last show at the Way Out Club, but I look forward to getting another shot at seeing them play.
