FOREVER EMO: Torrence, California's Joyce Manor comes to the Ritz with San Jose's own awakebutstillinbed

Somewhere around 2010, young musicians all over the country rediscovered the power of pairing emotionally vulnerable lyrics with jangly, guitar-driven hooks. Joyce Manor soon emerged as a top talent in this so-called emo revival. Their 2016 effort, Cody, saw the band push their frenetic sound in new directions—with an acoustic track, a handful of longer songs and some of their most concise writing yet. Though much of the album deals in anxiety and existential pain, it also has some bright spots. When “Constant Headache” starts blaring and the monster guitar crescendo hits, The Ritz will feel like one big group hug. (YK)
