Just like trends in fashion can become tired and almost seem goofy to those continuing to go for a certain “look,” genres of music, especially those in the subcategories of punk, can seem very last year.

While Dance Gavin Dance somewhat rose in the tale end of the tide of post-hardcore in the mid-aughts, the band managed to stay on the forefront of the movement with their superb musicianship and clever dynamic in their songwriting. Punctuated by noodling guitar work made popular by math rock bands, Dance Gavin Dance has a perfect blend of punk and pop to make them stand out from the rest of the groups that were being repackaged and recycled by the Hot Topic monster.

Back in the Alamo City again this April with djent bros Periphery, Don Broco, Hail the Sun and Covet, Dance Gavin Dance has securely held their seat in post-hardcore for more than a decade. And judging by how often they stop in San Antonio, they’re not giving it up anytime soon.

$28-$32, Sat April 6, 6pm, Alamo City Music Hall, 1305 E. Houston St.,
