Every Time I Die, Counterparts

Hardcore as we know it today has been shaped into a spectrum of amalgamated influences and sounds. The bands Every Time I Die and Counterparts encapsulate the hardcore mantra while deftly integrating elements of different genres. While ETID manages to incorporate classic rock riffs with spastic drumbeats and heavy breakdowns, Counterparts juxtaposes melodic guitar work reminiscent of late ’90s emo. From a lyrical perspective, both wax poetic and transcend philosophy tropes rooted in hardcore rhetoric. Pop punk lotharios Real Friends and skate punkers Gnarwolves round out the bill. $17, 5pm, Alamo City Music Hall, 1305 E. Houston St.
