Catch Christian Post-hardcore Band Emery at Jack's Bar


  • Bad Christian
Amid several other great heavy shows this weekend, stalwart South Carolina post-hardcore band Emery will stop at Jack’s with a few other choice acts.

Emery, which has kept fans waiting on new material since 2015’s rad You Were Never Alone LP, makes Christian post-hardcore that fuses in elements of emo and alternative, and largely avoids some of the usual pitfalls of Christian music in popular styles – especially the cardinal sin of unoriginality.

Other likeminded/similar sounding acts on this bill are Oh, Sleeper, Limbs and Rough Start. Whether you are a Christian or a rocker or a Christian rocker, the outfits on this bill are likely to provide the kind of searing musical onslaught that has been known to convert people – or at least leave them enraptured for a spell or two.

$20, Fri Aug 17, 7:30pm, Jack’s Bar, 3030 Thousand Oaks Dr., (210) 494-2309,
