This is a past event.

Dads, Runaway Brother, Roger Harvey, Flashlights, Tourist Traps

Valentine’s Day is a day for feelings, and Dads knows just how to give them to you with their particular stripe of emo punk. John Bradley’s intimate and yearning vocals mix with the craftsmanship of guitarist Scott Scharinger, creating a mathy sound that stays true to punk with fast riffs, call and response, and lyrics that just won’t leave your head. Their beautiful 2014 sophomore effort, I’ll Be the Tornado, is critically acclaimed, but won’t overshadow past favorites like “Boat Rich” when these guys grace the stage. It’s a packed show perfect for screaming your feelings, with four more bands, including local favorite Flashlights, taking to the intimate Backbooth stage. – Kaitlyn Pleasants
