Bayside, Saves the Day, I Am the Avalanche and Transit

$16-19

Somewhere in between their essential, self-lacerating emo masterpiece Stay What You Are and the much less macabre follow-up In Reverie, Saves the Day's Chris Conley really mellowed out—he exchanged the snottiness and sneer so pervasive on Stay What You Are and the albums preceding it for a crystal-clear voice and a knack for crafting buoyant, gorgeous melodies. It's a little incongruous, then, that Saves the Day is sharing a bill with "mainstreamo" bands like Bayside and Transit in this day and age, considering their latest release, Daybreak, is pure pop to the core (and "core" isn't a suffix in this instance). But there's still no doubt that they'll whip out "Freakish" at some point in the night, and everyone—not just the birds—is sure to sing along. MORGAN TROPER
