In late October, alt-rockers Dashboard Confessional were gearing up for a new album release and a nationwide tour when one of the band members suffered an undisclosed emergency. The full-on Dashboard Confessional tour was postponed until next year. In the meantime, frontman Chris Carrabba and guitarist John Lefler set out on an acoustic tour, playing small clubs. On Sunday, they'll come to the Ottobar for a sold-out show. Carrabba said this tour is reminiscent of the band's early days, when Dashboard Confessional consisted of Carrabba, his acoustic guitar and a few songs.

During pop-punk's heyday (late '90s/early '00s), part of the fun of being a fan was hearing tour announcements. You'd hope the stars might align to get, say, Hot Rod Circuit, Alkaline Trio and Dashboard Confessional on the same bill (Vagrant Across America Tour 2001). Almost a decade has passed and many of those bands are either dead, forgotten or stagnant - but not all! This year's installment of  "Where's the Band?" Tour - which stops by the Ottobar on Sunday and gets its name from the lead singers touring sans bandmates - shows pop-punk's forefathers are still working, writing and attempting to push the genre forward.

Rams Head Live will greet the new year with a blast from the long, long ago past: a performance by Dru Hill, the Baltimore R&B group that's better known these days for their clips on "I Love the 90s. " The group will be on the road promoting their back catalog. Sisqo, Jazz, and Nokio haven't released a new album since last summer, when "InDRUpendence Day" came out. It seems they haven't worked on anything else since;  their official Twitter page is still plugging the 2010 album.

It's a dangerous thing Chris Carrabba has done on his new album. With solo-acoustic songs jammed full of blistering emotion, Carrabba's one-man band, Dashboard Confessional, tapped into the omnipresent current of angst that underpins the existence of suburban teens throughout America. His fans - mostly young - connected so powerfully with the songs on The Swiss Army Romance and its 2001 successor, The Places You Have Come To Fear the Most, that Carrabba's concerts turned into sold-out sing-alongs, ritualistic catharses where kids could revel in romantic idealism while holding tight to their lurking suspicions of inevitable loneliness.

1. "Clash of the Titans": This movie has the potential to royally suck or really be kick-ass and awesome. I'm hoping it's the latter. Check it out in action-packed 3-D glory or good old fashioned 2-D on Friday. TIM WONG, B 2. Usher, Raymond v. Raymond : If this CD is anything like the 1979 movie "Kramer vs. Kramer," it will be a smash success. MATT VENSEL, B 3. April Fools Pants Off Dance Off: This item prompted me to visit the actual "Pants Off Dance Off" site and hear "Dan" say, "I've been known to teabag my friends when they're drunk."
