​If you're gainfully employed, Sunday may not the ideal evening for checking out killer rock at Churchill's. This week, though, it's worth the case of the Mondays, though, if you're among those with an appreciation for the long-lost version of '90s punk/hardcore that existed just before "screamo" became a dirty word.

Miss Real Screamo? Check Out Sweden's Suis La Lune at Churchill's June 27

Despite the name that makes it sound like a pretentious French indie band, Suis La Lune is actually a Swedish four-piece that spills its guts while kicking ass and taking names. If semi-forgotten names like Hot Cross, Embrace, Orchid, or, hell, even the great Rites of Spring set you to tingling, these fair-haired youngsters will make you feel like a spring chicken again. 

They arrive at Churchill's with two American tourmates: Fair Root and Pala, both from Maryland. The former largely skips the distortion and heads straight for the melodic emoting, while the latter resurrects the same ghosts as Suis La Lune. 

Suis La Lune. With Fair Root, Pala, Montgomery Drive, Capsule, and Cabrini Green. 9 p.m. Sunday, June 27. Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE 2nd Ave., Miami. Admission is $5; age 18 and up; 305-757-1807; churchillspub.com
