Rival Schools

Squeeze the Day for 10/17

Music Tonight: Walter Schreifels has been a pivotal part of one of the greatest straight-edge Hardcore bands of all time (Gorilla Biscuits) and one of the finest (if underrated) Post Hardcore bands ever, Quicksand. His winning streak continued when Schreifels formed Rival Schools in 1999. The band — featuring members of Youth of Today (a band which Schreifels was also a member) and CIV — lasted four years and released United By Fate on Island Records before calling it quits in 2003, as Schreifels went on to form the Indie Rock group Walking Concert. After five years, the group resurfaced with a string of Euro dates and news that a new album was forthcoming. After a few delays, Rival Schools' Pedals finally came out this spring. Rival Schools performs at The Mad Hatter in Covington tonight at 7 p.m. with Balance and Composure and Hostage Calm. Tickets are $15.

A.C. Newman should be studied by science in an attempt to discover the secret of his dual creative successes as the primary spark plug for The New Pornographers and as a solo artist. The Porns' fifth album, 'Together,' continues the band's unparalleled string of studio excellence while furthering the concrete-instrument-and-arrangement approach of 2007's baroque Pop and inexplicably misunderstood 'Challengers.'
