Tinley Park 5 Benefit Show at “Turnerdome” Sept. 14

Nineties-style straight edge hardcore outfit Dying plays tonight at the Tinley Park 5 Benefit Show, held at the “Turnerdome.” Bringing awareness to the Tinley Park Five, anti-fascists who were arrested for taking action in shutting down hate speech. The band’s willingness to use flourishes and moments of severe wistfulness where pure aggression would have come naturally is refreshing. Unafraid of the tender moment, Dying starts their album History of Nothing off in a downright contemplative direction with "Pray," leading off with muted, almost dreamlike arpeggios that eventually smolder into the reality of their pummeling hardcore. The group's sound is the loudest contender of the night, with the other bands on the lineup - Erik Petersen of Mischief Brew, The Adults, Corporate Hearts, Mean Streets, and Collingswood ska band Autocracy East - coming from wildly dissimilar ends of the punk spectrum for this night's call to action. Turnerdome, N. 2nd St. and Turner Ave., 7pm, All Ages - Alyssa Greenberg
