7 p.m. Monday, November 15. Fubar, 3108 Locust Street.

Codeseven wasn't the first band to abandon hardcore for the softer, blurred edges of space-aged alt-rock; Cave In and Dredg excavated Roswell a few years prior to the group's 2002 extraterrestrial masterpiece, The Rescue. But before its 2005 breakup, the North Carolina quintet demolished rigid genre molds — the kind that once restricted the use of delay pedals or synthesizer swells in heavy-leaning music. Now reunited, Codeseven's rare headlining performance at Fubar brings to light the band's influence on punk's gradual progression toward the progressive. Therefore, we request that Circa Survive, As Tall As Lions, the Dear Hunter and Portugal. the Man — as well as any others who consistently fall asleep cradling Botch's We Are the Romans in one arm and Kid A in the other — send Codeseven a well-deserved fruit basket.
