Dashboard Confessional

Sold out. 314-726-6161.

If a singer sports two arms covered in tattoos, is there still room for him to wear his heart on his sleeve? Doesn't matter in the case of Dashboard Confessional mastermind Chris Carrabba; the former Further Seems Forever frontman always ends up naked anyway — at least in the psychological sense. He's perfected the importance of being earnest and found emo-ternative success in the process, thanks to four albums (five if you count the live disc MTV Unplugged 2.0) that emphasize soaring vocals, fragile guitar and sob-along choruses. But instead of trying to get the girl on this year's Dusk and Summer, Carrabba explores a fuller sound, a darker edge and the notion of finding himself — both physically and emotionally.
