It's been over half a decade since screamo briefly entered and exited the mainstream consciousness, but that doesn't mean nobody cares anymore. On the contrary: Among a peculiar breed of hipster, for lack of a less vulgar word—the kind clad in earth tones, whose coolness is relative to the obscurity of his favorite hardcore record—screamo and all its relatives and outgrowths have endured marvelously and have even become a sort of generational secret handshake. So it's no surprise that Italian screamo lodestar Raein's appearance in Portland is generating a degree of rabidity typically reserved only for a hypothetical 'N Sync reunion. Granted, this is a pretty big deal—Raein verges on "fucking legendary" status and they're playing a donation-based, all-ages show at a bookstore. While undoubtedly satisfying fans of their older material, the group's latest offering, Sulla Linea d'Orizzonte Tra Questa Mia Vita e Quella di Tutti, unexpectedly flirts with a variety of other styles (dream pop, Sonic Youth worship). All in all, you gotta go. MORGAN TROPER
