When you hear the soaring Post Hardcore roar of Dayton, Ohio’s successful Hawthorne Heights, the first thing you think is probably not, “Wow, that tune would sound great around a campfire and performed on just an acoustic guitar.” But singer JT Woodruff will do just that (minus the campfire) this Saturday in the Southgate House’s intimate Parlour room, the same venue in which the Heights filmed a music video and, more recently, performed the final show of their 2009 tour, just before Christmas.
Expect to hear some acoustic versions of HH faves as well as songs slated for the band’s new album, Skeletons, due within the next few months. The all-ages “Screamo Unplugged” show (our name, not theirs) starts at 8 p.m. and also features Mark Rose of Spitalfield and Josh Hill of the local band Ellison.
Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 day of show.
