The Lion's Daughter
Featuring 25 St. Louis bands covering 25 classic punk tracks — from GG Allin to Joy Division, Fear to Refused — the Nora-Fest compilation album, to be released this Saturday at Fubar, is an excellent way to hear your favorite local bands playing the songs that got you into underground music in the first place.
It is also the perfect way to honor Nora, Encapsulated Records' studio mascot, who was tragically hit by a car earlier this year. But more than all of that, it is a fantastic way to support a great cause: 100 percent of all proceeds from the sale of the compilation, as well as door money from this show, will be donated to the Stray Rescue of St. Louis, where Nora herself spent some time before being adopted.
Saturday's show will feature performances by the Lion's Daughter, Quaere Verum, Alan Smithee, Bastard, the Wilderness, Shitstorm, Path of Might, Valley, Grand Inquisitor, Cujo, Sidelined, Leon Lamont and At War Within. More than a dozen local businesses will be participating in a raffle as well.
