If you’re looking to take emo’s temperature—or perhaps challenge anyone whose perception of the genre is stuck in 2005, 1995, or 1985—this tour is the place to start. Hometown heroes Into It. Over It. headline behind their recent Standards (Triple Crown), a trenchant, sensitive, and contemplative album that explores our ever-changing, sometimes contradictory selves. Front man Evan Weiss sifts through his past, recalling youthful dreams, surveying changes that have marked his early 30s and affected longtime friends, and examining the constants of his life as they appear to him today. Weiss is often tagged as a spokesperson for emo’s fourth wave and a standard-bearer for the second wave’s “golden age” in the 90s, but he comes off best when listeners put aside labels and simply bask in his explorations of the wishy-washy feelings resident in his head. On the nimble, muscular “No EQ” Weiss acknowledges the hypnotic power of nostalgia and recognizes that the energy it consumes makes it hard to work toward a future. Ultimately Weiss’s ability to give shape to this struggle emboldens Into It. Over It. to move forward. Opener New Jersey outfit Pinegrove are among those helping reshape what emo is today; these punks express themselves in a voice that’s thoroughly alt-country but powered by emo, and this year’s Cardinal (Run for Cover) is affecting in every raw, cracked vocal and scuzzy guitar drawl.
