Emo prince and former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way is in the midst of a reinvention, but that doesn’t mean he’s totally forgotten the days of Sweet Revenge or The Black Parade. Way has taken his signature voice and darkly romantic lyrics to new, extraterrestrial heights with his solo debut, Hesitant Alien, exploring glam, Britpop, and the much brighter world outside of post-hardcore and pop-punk. Of course, that doesn’t mean your thick black eyeliner, red tie, and shirt bearing the skeletal soldier won’t be welcome at the show; Way is sure to pull out some of the hits that may have defined your pre-teen years.
