With the release of his breakthrough 2001 album, “The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most,” Chris Carrabba became the unmitigated king, duke, earl and allied commander of young millennial songwriters who unabashedly wore their vulnerable, brokenhearted emotion on their sleeve. Developing from a solo acoustic project into a full-fledged band, Carrabba's Dashboard Confessional and its aching sing-a-long catharsis is as consistent and introspective as ever for his support-group audience. Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the band's debut album, “The Swiss Army Romance,” Dashboard Confessional is scheduled to perform at the National on Wednesday, Dec. 1, at 6:30 p.m. $20-$25. 612-1900.
