Tokyo Rose 

Sunday, November 20; Creepy Crawl (412 North Tucker Boulevard)

Sure, it's funny to say that New Jersey is the "Armpit Of America," but when it comes to churning out hardcore, screamo and emo bands, the Garden State ain't kidding around: First came Thursday, then My Chemical Romance and now Tokyo Rose. The band's latest album, New American Saint, came out last month on SideCho Records and features a collection of head-banging rockers ("Spectacle"), introspective odes ("Goodbye Almond Eyes") and authoritative anthems ("Bottle Marked: Caution"). If you pray to the altar of Jimmy Eat World's Jim Adkins and Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl, you might want to make room for new idol, TR lead singer/guitarist Ryan Dominguez. — Leslie Simon
