Dumb Vision's frills-free garage rock applies plenty of fuzz to mask its melodic tendencies. Get past the musical smoke and mirrors for pop gems and solid songwriting. The Goes bring a blend of goth punk and new wave, brought to you by members of Willis and Nos Bos.

-T-Rextasy (NY)
-Mirror Mirror

There is a common thread that links the four bands on this show: All sit on the sliding scale of punk between pop and rock. Both touring acts bring heavy hooks with strong vocal leads -- qualities that have garnered hype in music media and DIY circles alike.

These are just some highlights. Check the sidebar for more!
