Musicologist: October 29–November 4

Photo triptych of The Go! Team by cryptdang.
This week, emo kids will have a tough choice as they decide between Dashboard Confessional and Jimmy Eat World on Thursday night. Despite our weakness for the genre (and its evil cousin, mall punk), Musicologist recommends The Go! Team that night—their single “Grip Like A Vice” is one of the most fun tracks of the year.
As for other nights, we suggest checking out Josh Rouse and Maria Taylor (the latter is formerly of Azure Ray) on Tuesday and Mum on Friday. If you’re a fan of Staggered Crossing, though, you should make your way to the Horseshoe that night, as they play their last show before an “indefinite hiatus” (and we all know what that really means).
Full listings after the jump.
