Emo is back from the dead it seems. With bands like Thursday rocking a show in late January of this year and Cursive now coming to town, it seems like the universe may be telling us we’re overdue for a good cry.

Emotive, indie and at times screamy, Cursive rose to popularity in the aughts-wave of post-hardcore and emo — right before “screamo” became a term. And while that term could be used to label pretty much anything pop punk with a hint of screaming, Cursive were and are way artsier. There’s also a maturity to the band’s sound that separates it from trendy rehashes of the genre.

$18-$20, Fri Feb. 8, 7pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 841-3771, papertigersatx.com.
