Tooth & Nail Rank & File

Since its inception in 1993, Tooth & Nail Records has gained a reputation of support and dependability for its bands. The label's a proud indie tradition that often has run afoul of confused meatheads who've pegged the label as some quasi-Christian outfit. Seriously, though, who really gives a damn? Its roster has included greats like the Juliana Theory, MxPx, and the Huntingtons. T&N's new crop of asskickers hit the road with recent sensations Emery headlining this loud mo'fo. Increasing critical accolades and fan support have propelled this sextet out of humble beginnings in South Carolina. Their brand of screamo hardcore runs through emo and pop sensibilities. Right below them (on the posters, anyway) is Florida's quintet of stylish rockers Anberlin. Recently signed to Tooth, they'll be pouring it all out on the road, and something tells me it won't be long before both these camps get name-dropped by your parents.

Emery and Anberlin perform with the Fold and the Classic Crime at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 26, at the Culture Room, 3045 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $14.99. Call 954-564-1074.
