Band of Horses will be performing at the Factory on Saturday, February 17th at 8 p.m. The Factory is located at 17105 North Outer 40 Road in Chesterfield. For more information, you can call 314-423-8500.

Since its inception in the mid-2000s, Band of Horses has been tirelessly perfecting its unique blend of post-rock and alt-country influences. The band has steadily risen from the ranks of Sub Pop to major labels, all while keeping its music fresh and relevant. This is largely due to the talent of singer-songwriter Ben Bridwell, who has led the band through numerous lineup changes and remains the only original member. Their latest album, 2022’s Things Are Great, takes the band back to its roots with a raw and autobiographical sound. Bridwell explores the frustrations and challenges of modern life, making for a powerful and relatable listening experience. Fans in St. Louis can expect to hear a mix of old and new material at the Factory this week.

Cro-Mags

Cro-Mags will be performing with SNAFU on Tuesday, February 20th at 8 p.m. at Red Flag, located at 3040 Locust Street. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by calling 314-289-9050.

For over 30 years, the Cro-Mags have reigned as the kings of New York hardcore, delivering a powerful mix of fast-paced punk and unbridled aggression. They were pioneers in blending hardcore punk with thrash metal in the late 1980s, and their debut album, Age of Quarrel, is considered a classic in the genre. The band’s sound was a revolution, and its members were known for their martial arts skills and their belief in the impossibility of world peace. The Cro-Mags’ history has been marked by violence, including a backstage altercation in 2012 that resulted in two stabbings and a broken leg. However, the band has since settled its differences and now allows former members to tour under different variations of the band’s name. This particular show will be led by founding member Harley Flanagan and is sure to be an intense and rowdy experience.
