Sweet Pill, Zeta, Equipment

Hailing from Philadelphia, emo fivepiece Sweet Pill adds a new experimental edge to pop-punk nostalgia. The group’s latest EP, Starchild, simmers with breakneck riffs, tug-of-war tempos, and bittersweet lyrics. In just over 11 minutes, their Good Charlotte-reminiscent melodies tread the early 2000s with sharply stacked vocals (“Chewed Up”) and steadfast drumming (“Sympathy”). The Hopeless Record signees further showcase their range with the mellow-paced plucks of “Eternal,” just before bringing the project to an all-or-nothing electric end with “Sympathy.” The night features support from Venezuelan post-rock foursome Zeta and hardcore heavy-hitters Equipment. – Miranda Garza
