Get those heart strings in check Phoenix. Emotive modern-rockers Blue October are coming to town and they've got a new album full of heartache and pain in tow.
It's been 16 years since the Texas quintet first donned the eye-liner and started wearing their hearts on their sleeves and after five albums and hit singles like, "Hate Me" and "Into the Ocean," they're still doing what they do best; pouring themselves into their music. Touring behind their sixth installment, Any Man In America, the album was spurred on by singer Justin Furstenfeld's tumultuous divorce and subsequent custody battle in 2008.
Doors open at 7 p.m. at the Foundry on First, Thursday, September 8, and is open to all ages.
