Joan of Arc, Magas, Youth League

When: Tue., Jan. 31, 9 p.m. 2017

Chicago-based indie rock outfit Joan of Arc rose from the ashes of post-hardcore luminaries Cap'n Jazz in 1995, amid the death rattles of emo's old guard. Former frontman Tim Kinsella traded in his old band's mathy manual for a standard, melodically driven songbook and dusted off Casio keyboards, shifting from labyrinthine to layered. Joan of Arc's twenty-year career is distinguished by a tireless creative drive, frequent lineup shifts, and mild trolling. The band's new record, He's Got the Whole This Land Is Your Land in His Hands, is its goofiest to date. One thing's for sure: nothing cures the post-election dumps quite like hearing an emo icon sing the words "I know how the nicest guy in ISIS feels." MAGAS and Youth League open. —Zoe Camp
