Well I don't know what kind of music you like but out of that list I personally enjoy and would recommend:
: No need for a comment. Just go see them. ;-)
: A band I used to love and introduced me to the heavier side of music. Post hardcore, two guitars, screams and beautiful melodic vocals together. They broke up in 2011/2012 and this is their reunion tour.
: My first favorite band from when I was 10 or even earlier. Influential swedish pop punk band from the early 90's that never stopped putting out quality music for skaters everywhere in the world.
: Very fun band to listen to, pop punk with hardcore riffs and drums but the catchiest choruses and verses ever.
Into It. Over It.
: In my opinion one of the bands with the most beautiful and emotional songwriting around. Musically and lyrically near perfection. It's difficult to describe them with one genre but I'd say emo/math rock because of the internet.
: mostly happy pop with beautiful vocals and guitars.
: Another band that I consider one of the most interesting around. Inspired by the 90's alternative and grunge, they use intricate dissonant melodies and tempo to create memorable catchy songs.
: Currently one of my favorites. post-rock/emo. I can feel my heart swell every time I listen to them.
: Very good post-hardcore/punk/whatever band. I don't know how to describe them without using the same terms I've used for every single band in this list because I'm ignorant and lazy. I'll just link a track I enjoy a lot from my favorite album of theirs : https://signalsmidwe...rack/i-was-lost
Also, I'm not the biggest fan of the following bands but I'd go see these anyways for various reasons:
Drive Like Jehu
: Very important band in recent history of music. Like the beatles of hardcore but not overrated.
: I haven't listened to them yet but my best friend Dan says the new album is nice
: I could never get into his music but a lot of people around here likes him.
: They have some fun stuff but it's generic pop punk.
: Their first two eps are just incredible. In my favorites ever. Then they changed name and genre and the new album sounds like Puddle of Mudd.
: I listened to them only once but they're on Big Scary Monsters, a label I like to support.
: Never listened to them but they had a music video with Nick Offerman. Good enough for me.
Hope I was helpful and you have a great time regardless. Let me know what you think if you go listen to any of this ;-)
