Circle Takes the Square, Sloths, The Sky Above & Earth Below 

When: Tue., April 22, 7 p.m. 2014
Price: $8
Circle Takes the Square's 2004 LP, As the Roots Undo, is considered one of the most influential screamo albums ever released, before the genre collapsed on itself and degenerated into an interminable bad joke. If a great and innovative record weren't enough to cement the group's legacy, the gestation process between Roots and the group's most recent LP, Decompositions, was a whopping eight years, a move that ultimately engendered Chinese Democracy-levels of hype within the punk community (if you'll forgive the vulgar analogy). And Circle Takes the Square's reentry into the punk playing field couldn't have happened at a better time. It coincides perfectly with a renewed interest in classic emotional hardcore—or "skramz," as the zealots like to call it.
