My Chemical Romance

Thursday, September 22; the Pageant (6161 Delmar Boulevard)


Back in the day, New Joisey's My Chemical Romance was a scrawny little quintet singing about vampires and opening for the Movielife and Finch. Of course, "the day" refers to its early 2003 tour -- before MCR upgraded from Eyeball Records to the major label Reprise Records, before its sophomore CD, Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, sold gold and before vocalist Gerard Way stopped speaking to his former BFF, the Used singer Bert McCracken. In fact, My Chemical Romance v.2.0 is bigger, badder, and more emo and goth (although less intoxicated) than its former self. But catch its first headlining tour, and see if you don't get the same goosebumps as before.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are sold out; call 314-726-6161 for more information.
