Denver's Planes Mistaken for Stars have in the past been unfairly labeled as "emo" because of their roots in punk and their emotionally naked lyrics. Truth be told, this four-man post-hardcore outfit plays a mixture of riff-rock, punk and metal that would scare most emo kids out of their horn-rimmed glasses. Having built its sound over a few lower-profile releases, the band last year released the career-making Up in them Guts: 40 minutes of roiling, storming psychic terror and distortion-pedal mayhem.

Planes Mistaken for Stars took their name from a Replacements lyric, so their live show promises booze-soaked spontaneous chaos. There is no doubt that they're loud enough live to match their album's distortion-laden sound. Expect to see the long-haired tough guys in the front, the emo kids at the back.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10; call 314-621-9019 for more information.
