Hey Mercedes: Everynight Fireworks Tour/The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die/Prawn 

When: Sun., July 10, 8:30 p.m. 2016
Price: $15 ADV $18 DOS
Reunion and anniversary tours are currently in vogue in the realm of emo and punk music, and the legendary early 2000s four-piece Hey Mercedes are combining the two for a bill that reads like an emo lover’s dream. The group, which originally formed from the ashes of the also-revered emo band Braid, recently reunited to celebrate the 15th birthday of their 2001 LP Everynight Fireworks. The record took Braid’s trademark aggressive style and made it more accessible, writing poppier tunes with a bit of an edge a la Saves The Day or Jimmy Eat World — songs like “Eleven to Your Seven” and “Frowning of a Lifetime” combine quick power chord-based pacing with plenty of heart. They’ll receive support from modern emo revivalists the World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die and Prawn, who’ll surely draw their fair share of younger fans to the gig.
