Music Around Town, Seasonal Special Happenings

Reggie & the Full Effect/Dads/Pentimento

When: Fri., Feb. 14, 9 p.m. 2014

If you are at least 25 and were into that whole “emo” trend as a teenager, the name Reggie and the Full Effect will at least ring a bell. Now, they’re back again, bringing their fast-paced, ironic pop-punk sound. After living in relative obscurity for a while, they reappeared with a Kickstarter project in March of last year in order to raise the money to record another album. Well, that album was released this past November and brings back their same old witty nostalgia. Songs like “37” touch on the subject of an aging musician who must battle monsters from an alternate universe that have come to abduct him. Catchy, sing-along “ra-ras” and boyish vocals make this song feel very 2001, while “Kanji Tattoos… Still in Style?” focuses on dance-y electronics and sappy lyrics straight from a high schooler’s journal. Cheesy? You bet, but that’s the point (Liz Trenholme)
