Hawthorne Heights

Friday, October 28; Pop's (1403 Mississippi Avenue, Sauget, Illinois)



Dayton, Ohio's Hawthorne Heights are five nice young men who just so happened to tap into the underground holler-until-your-vocal-cords-shred movement with their emo-riffic debut CD, The Silence in Black and White. Now an MTV fave, they've sold a metric ton of records and perfectly capture the heart-squeezing longing inherent in long-distance relationships with the whisper-to-a-scream single, "Ohio Is for Lovers."

Show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15; call 618-274-6720 for more information.
