HAWTHORNE HEIGHTS
7 p.m., the Village. $17-$20.

Casual pop fans might remember Hawthorne Heights from several years back, when the emo band's label urged its street team (read: over zeal-ous fans) to boost one of its releases into the number one spot on the Billboard charts ahead of an album by Camden-born crooner and R&B star Ne-Yo by moving the latter around in stores and otherwise obscuring it. The rallying cry didn't work (Hawthorne Heights' album debuted at No. 3), and it led to the band splitting from and filing a lawsuit against its label (the charge to the street team apparently came without the group's consent). That disagreement appears to be settled now, but the hard times haven't gotten away. Guitarist and vocalist Casey Culvert died late last year of a bad drug combination. Still, the Ohio-rooted act soldiers on. Two months ago, they put out “Fragile Future,” an impas-sioned, tragic album for the kids to wave their lighters (or open cell phones) to. Four bands open the show: Emery, the Color Fred, Tickle Me Pink and the Mile After.
