New Jersey's Pinegrove
Friday, July 8

“If I did what I wanted, then why do I feel so bad?” asks Pinegrove’s Evan Hall, mulling over this eternal question of youth. On their debut effort Cardinal, the New Jersey quintet considers similar problems of the young and the hormonal: Are my oldest friends my truest friends? Does she want to dance? Could I live in a van forever? To their merit, these sad boys wear their hearts on their sleeves quite well, avoiding the trappings of emo’s worst while tapping into the best of its wide-eyed promise with feelings of instant nostalgia. Consider it emo for people who hate emo. With Sports, Half Waif, Hovvdy. $12, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary's St.
