Dance Gavin Dance

Post-hardcore has started to become a bit of a stale genre. Like, the same ‘ol screams, breakdowns, clean singing parts and desperate lyrics about relationships, or Jesus or whatever, have become so paint-by-number, that a lot of the shit’s just painfully boring (a reason why the genre is dying out). Dance Gavin Dance, however, have managed to stay just ahead of the curve with their tight instrumentation, solid songwriting and unique math-rock guitar melodies. Also on the bill is Polyphia, who write songs that sound like they could be playing in the background during the flying level in every video game ever. Distorted, poppy, jazzy, metal guitar riffs accompany technical drumming to produce a sound that is half hilarious, half awe-inspiring and 100 percent goofy. Still considered part of the “djent” movement, even though the band isn’t quite as heavy as groups like Periphery or Born Of Osiris, Polyphia explore the outlying realms of jazz and metal for a unique brand of technical prog-rock that’s been fascinating listeners since 2010. Hailing from Dallas, this young trio are proving that prog-rock isn’t necessarily for dads in Rush T-shirts anymore.

Theory Coffee
    2347 Nacogdoches Road, (210) 570-4407, theorycoffeeco.com
    Owned by a man with beard enough for two, Mark Vollmer’s coffee trailer offers quality coffee and pastries to cappuccino-craving commuters at 410 and Nacogdoches. In the time since it’s opened, the area surrounding this coffee trailer has transformed into a hub of food vendors with varied seating options, some natural greenery and occasional live music. Grab an iced latte (there’s house-made almond milk for vegans, too) and admire one of the classic muscle cars that frequently stop by.
