Look, a brigade of whining emo bands sponsored by Hot Topic is not normally our cup of tea, but if – if– we happen to have readers who might be able to be nudged toward this show, we’ll tell you why you should take the plunge: Portions of the proceeds go to supporting Rutgers University’s teen organization, Sex, Etc. Through their website (sexetc.org) and national magazine, Sex, Etc. readily makes available a wealth of answers to the questions that everyone from schools to Congress attempt on a daily basis to render murky. From the truth about Planned Parenthood (good) and so-called “pregnancy crisis centers” (bad) to basic science (Q: Does abortion cause breast cancer? A: No.), Sex, Etc. is doing the work that community leaders, parents and schools are increasingly not allowed or equipped to do. As teen-aimed “rock” is increasingly being overtaken by Christian do-gooders with a thinly veiled agenda, it’s nice to see bands like Silverstein doing their thing with a rational message. –Justin Strout (with Silverstein, Bayside, Polar Bear Club, the Swellers, Texas In July; 5:30 p.m. at Firestone Live, 578 N. Orange Ave.; $18-$20; 407-872-0066; firestonelive.net)
