Let's be honest: the M.T.V. generation's collective emo phase was a fucking trip. If you were born at any point between the 1980s and 2000s, there's a real chance that embarrassing snapshots of studded belts, black wristbands and dramatically swept bangs haunt you. Brimming with the fire of adolescent angst, we mimicked the attitudes and fashion statements of those who best channeled our internal turmoil – i.e. sad boys with guitars. In those dark times, we adored sullen songwriters like Dashboard Confessional's Chris Carrabba. Always wandering across a deserted beach or field in their sepia music videos, sad boys with guitars realized the fantasy of self-indulgence, assuring us that our problems really were at the center of the universe. Glancing back into the past, Ventura hosts a special lineup in honor of the trope. Sad Boy Sessions puts a somber spotlight on Johnnie Sunday, the Sunset Doctrine, Damian Wyldes, Jacob Andrew and the Signature. Hurts so good. $5-10, 8pm, Ventura SATX, 1011 Ave. B
