$20 ADV // 6pm // All Ages

Philadelphia-by-way-of Scranton punk band, The Menzingers are two years removed from Epitaph debut On The Impossible Past. Voted Album of the Year by Absolute Punk and Punk News, the universal acclaim praised the band for its punk roots and quintessentially Midwest romantics. The same accolades have followed The Menzingers since forming as teenagers, followed since Chamberlain Waits (2010) and A Lesson In The Abuse of Information Technology (2007).

A blend of experimental rock structures, punky energy, spoken word melodies, and Judeo-Christian content characterizes the output of mewithoutYou, a Philadelphia-based band that formed in 2001. Having grown up listening to Jawbox and Burning Airlines, brothers Aaron and Michael Weiss initially cut their hard rock teeth as frontmen of the Operation. MewithoutYou issued their full-length debut, [A — > B] Life, during the summer of 2002. The band's well-received sophomore effort, Catch for Us the Foxes, followed in late 2004.As the bandmembers looked forward to 2009, they began working on material that replaced their traditional post-hardcore flourishes with an emphasis on acoustic instrumentation and Neutral Milk Hotel-styled folk. The result was 2009's It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All a Dream! It's Alright, whose long-winded title modeled itself after the teachings of Sufi leader Bawa Muhaiyaddeen. Released in 2012, the colorful, Daniel Smith-produced Ten Stories was built around a narrative concerning the fate of a late 19th century traveling circus in Montana, while 2015's Will Yip-produced Pale Horses, the band's sixth studio long-player, saw the group returning to the raw intensity of its earlier work.
