Critics' Pick: The Weak Days at Roboto

[PUNK] + FRI., DEC. 15

Washington, D.C-area emo punks The Weak Days have enough heart to make their passion believable, but enough chill energy to repeatedly and unironically describe things as “tight” on their latest record — also called Tight. For more emo tunes to really get you in your feelings, Indiana’s Caving sings raw and almost too-real tunes, like “Anatomy of a Crush,” featuring lyrics like, “I wanna tell you that I think you’re adorable / But I think I’d rather you just kick me in the shins.” Too real, don’t look me in the eye. The band is joined at Mr. Roboto Project by the local alt-rockers Distant Futures, fresh off the release of its first EP, Were. Balancing out the night is some folksy punk from The Childlike Empress.

7 p.m.
5106 Penn Ave., Bloomfield.
All ages. $7.
