FRAMING HANLEY
9 p.m., Juanita's, $10 adv., $12 d.o.s.

This five-piece, post-hardcore act
from Nashville comes complete with heavy radio rotation and trendy haircuts. Supporting 2007's debut, “The Moment,” which includes the single “Hear Me Now,” these homemade heartthrobs re-released the same album, “Deluxe Edition,” last year, which includes a metal-hop infused cover of Lil' Wayne's “Lollipop,” complete with catch-phrase “Call me so I can make it juicy for ya.” But they do, however, score some diversity points. On a completely different spectrum, the “lonely-at-night, I'll-hold-you-again” power ballad “Alone in This Bed” will probably get lighters raised high. The band name, kind of a head-scratcher, does, however, have a sentimental origin deserving mention. Through late 2006, the crew went by Embers Fade, until the drummer's fiancee, Ashley Hanley, who once served as the band's photographer, passed away. So take the picture “framing” and her last name and you have a band titled in her honor. Canadian alt-rockers the Veer Union, whose singer collaborated on Tommy Lee's “Tommyland: The Ride” album, and Memphis' soul-pop-punksters Sore Eyes open the 18-and-up show.
