Joan of Arc, Air Waves 

When: Tue., May 10, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $10-12
Kinsella alert! Long associated with emo's brief, not-yet-shameful heyday of the late '90s, Tim Kinsella's shape-shifting Joan of Arc project has gone to heroic lengths to distance themselves from the diary toters of yore. (If you want to get your bawl on, brother Mike Kinsella of American Football and Owen is a far better option.) As for JOA, they are still at it—this time around touring in support of the forthcoming Life Like, which incorporates former Cap'n Jazz member and longtime Kinsella collaborator (Kinsellaborator?) Victor Villarreal into the quartet. It's a stretch to say Life Like is more approachable than previous recordings—especially considering that the opening song is nearly 11 minutes in length—but there is a certain return to form and youthfulness, permeating this dutifully stringent recording.
