Backlash against gushy, mushy breakup songs seems pretty quaint now. Consequently, an album like Taking Back Sunday's Tell All Your Friends can be remembered with the halo of nostalgia hanging over it. You can call it "emo" and be mostly right — the album is, after all, a punky caricature of girls as malicious heartbreakers — but the grief-stricken boys in TBS are great at couching their venom in gleaming choruses. It's a pity party, sure, but the party is a rager. The band celebrates the 10th birthday of their debut (and best) album with a tour that's centered on playing the whole thing live. You can relive your horrible high school relationships without having to break out the embarrassing photos. With Bayside and Mansions. All ages.
