Matchbook Romance 

Tuesday, November 8; Mississippi Nights (914 North First Street)

They've been known as Fizzlewick and the Getaway, but the Poughkeepsie, New York, foursome currently known as Matchbook Romance has been fanning the flames of emo-pop stardom since 1997. True, the release of their second full length, Voices, has been delayed from autumn to February 2006. And it's also true that it might be easy to write them off as hook-happy pretty boys with as much staying power as yesterday's catchphrase. But with Epitaph Records head/Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz in their corner, Matchbook Romance just may be the future musical equivalent of "D'oh!" instead of, say, "Cowabunga, dude!"

Show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $13 to $15; call 314-421-3853 for more information.
