Me Without You, The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die and Dark Rooms

Recommended

Hawthorne Theatre (map) Southeast
Tue., June 17, 7 p.m. 2014 All Ages

$15-18

Of all the bands swept up in the Great Emo Revival of 2013 (don't snicker, that was a real thing), the World Is a Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid To Die is, without question, the one with the most ridiculous name. They're also one of the best. Sprung from the Northeast, 10-member-strong TWIABP employs many of emo's hallmarks on its 2013 album Whenever, If Ever—strained vocals, ultra-inclusive ethos, guitars for days—but does it with a sense of adventure: in sudden dynamic shifts, in synth and string sections, in arpeggiated chords that recall a dynamic post-rock band. They'll make a fine opener for MewithoutYou, the Philly group that will play its fan-fave 2004 album Catch for Us the Foxes in its entirety. BEN SALMON
