It’s been 10 years since Dashboard Confessional released Swiss Army Romance, a record that was basically the diary of every heartbroken kid in America, turned into sensitive acoustic songs about how confusing and horrible both love and life can be. At the time, you either loved or hated Dashboard Confessional for the heart that frontman Chris Carrabba unapologetically wore on his sleeve, with lyrics like, “Your hair, it’s everywhere/Screaming infidelities and taking its wear.” So if you drank the Kool-Aid and you care enough to attend the show, tonight will be either a satisfying dip into a pool of comfortable nostalgia, or an unbearable evening of embarrassment that forces you to reflect on all the unrequited crushes, relationships, and records on which you wasted your time, forcing you to ask, “What the fuck was I thinking?” MEGAN SELING
