Why you should go: From a news release:
Where most bands erroneously claim wholly distinct identities, Dance Gavin Dance truly defies categorization. The Sacramento-based outfit possess the kind of artistic compass shared with broadminded but metal and punk-rooted iconoclasts like The Mars Volta and Coheed and Cambria, but use it to diverge wildly, charting a new course that incorporates the melodic post-hardcore of Thursday or Taking Back Sunday with a taste of earnest pop melancholy.
If you’re not so sure what that description means, check out “Son of Robot,” from the band’s upcoming studio album, “Artificial Selection”:
