Into It. Over It. at the Parish. The band’s new LP “Standards” shows a remarkable musical growth characteristic of the whole “pop punk renaissance” that’s emerged as Warped Tour kids have grown up and gotten mortgages. The heart-pangs are still there; everything just sounds a little more sober. At a SXSW show last month they proved to be an athletic band that works up a sweat, dropping their bodies into the beats. And in a testament to resonant bedroom journal lyrics and chords that keep you 17 in your head, stand-bys and new cuts wrapped everyone up with the same sense of wistfulness. With The World is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die. $16. 214 E. Sixth St. parishaustin.com. — Eric Webb
