Adam Levy has fronted The Honeydogs for more than 20 years now, but it’s his new debut solo album “Naubinway” that is garnering some of the best press of his career—and rightfully so. The album is dedicated to and written about his son Daniel, who committed suicide in 2012. The record is is as raw and personal as anything you’ll hear this year. $12 / All ages / Buy tickets

Formed in 1995, Kansas City’s The Get Up Kids were one of the forebears of late 90’s/early 00’s emo and influenced a number of bands since. Other than a short three-year breakup in 2005, the band has remained quite active throughout their career. Lead singer Matt Pryor has been incredibly prolific over the last 15 years as well, having released a dozen albums between the more acoustic leaning The New Amsterdams and his more recent solo career. $22 / 18+ / Buy tickets
