Touché Amoré

Into It. Over It.

Concept project from Chicago emo vet Evan Weiss swings from acoustic emo to full rockin' band.


Fri., 5:20pm, Dragon’s Lair stage
Omaha outfit made it big on 2003's critically beloved The Ugly Organ, Tim Kasher's about-to-cry vocals and frantic, mathy guitar lines leading the way.

Touché Amoré

Fri., 9:15pm, the Keep stage
New kids on the screamo block: Los Angeles-based, fast-paced, and crushing.


Sun., 4:25pm, Dragon’s Lair stage
Austin-sown fourpiece operates on the more abrasive, harder edge of emo. No new material since an indefinite hiatus in late 2005.


Sun., 9:20pm, the Keep stage
Soul-crushing on a global level, serving up gritty, dystopian sermons by way of Detroit. Grating, off-kilter post-punk delivered in Joe Casey's bored drawl.
