Dashboard Confessional

When: Tue., Nov. 30, 7 p.m. 2010

Dashboard Confessional singer Chris Carrabba is a heartsick confessional singer in the mold of Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst, only lacking commensurate lyrical or emotional sophistication. Instead, his music appeals to those caught between Judy Blume and Twilight, with romantic confessions juvenile enough for Hello Kitty. With gut-churning sensitivity, he avers, "Life is hard/ let me dry your eyes" and worries "your kiss might kill me," sentiments bald and simplistic enough to make even tough guys gag. Musically, Dashboard Confessional recalls the earliest, overly earnest days of emo, when sweaters outnumbered hoodies or eyeshadow. With Cory Branan and John Lefler. —Chris Parker

Price: $25-28
