Semi Precious Weapons

7 p.m. Monday, November 24. Pop's, 1403 Mississippi Avenue, Sauget, Illinois.



The rest of the country including celeb blogger Perez Hilton is finally starting to wake up to something St. Louis has known for several years now: NYC's Semi Precious Weapons is a must-see band. Fronted by Justin Tranter a six-foot-tall beanpole fond of sporting flamboyant makeup, severe hairdos and cutting-edge fashion the trio specializes in stomping glam-garage-rock indebted to the New York Dolls, Bowie, T. Rex and other members of the glitter-rock elite. In fact, legendary Thin White Duke collaborator Tony Visconti produced this year's We Love You.
