AFI, Touche Amore, Coming

PETE COTTELL
7 pm., Thursday October 31 | Sold out.
Roseland Theater
8 NW 6th Ave.
 
[MASCARA PUNK] The convergence of Warped Tour vets AFI and upstart post-hardcore-scene heroes Touche Amore may seem unremarkable on paper, but there’s more going on here than just a young band touring with old guys. AFI once carried the flag for anthemic, all-in hardcore punk, but the past decade has seen the band digress into a proggy caricature of its former self. Arena ambitions be damned, the group can still bring it live—but expect Touche Amore to do a finer job of appeasing the older fans who showed up in hopes of AFI reliving its ’90s glory days, delivering blistering, sub-two-minute salvos about the angst of existence. Show up early and witness the torch being passed.
