Punk Rock Cover Show

8:30 p.m. Saturday, March 5. Fubar, 3108 Locust Street.



St. Louis is kind of a unique city for cover bands and tribute shows and the like — it seems that we as a community have an exceptional affinity for musical facsimile. Fubar seems to have picked up on this predilection, and over the last year or so has been hosting occasional "all-covers" nights, oftentimes of the pop-punk variety. At this upcoming show, locals Mouthbreather will play as Taking Back Sunday, Warbrain as Alkaline Trio, the Great Bambino will do its best Green Day impression, and Get Weird will perform songs from Blink-182's catalog.

Recommended Two-Drink Minimum: So you're a stick in the mud, eh? Not feeling it? Well, it's a bar, dummy — down a couple drinks and squint your eyes just right, and you'll be gleefully singing along in no time.
