This four-piece band from Omaha is not exclusively emo in sound its chamber-pop leanings and proclivity for sweeping, desperate string arrangements transcend standard guitar angst but Tim Kasher's fraught lyrics, which tackle the many repercussions of love gone awry, are perfectly indicative of the genre. With the Love Language. At 8:30 p.m., Maxwell's, 1039 Washington Street, Hoboken, N.J. , (201) 653-1703, maxwellsnj.com; sold out.
