This is one of those shows that serious music heads live for. Topped by Wrong and Nothing, the bill features a couple of bands representing the new, more expansive wings of iconic metal label Relapse Records. Loaded with former members of cred-packed bands like Torche, Kylesa and Capsule, Wrong are one of the most exciting new hurricanes to blow up recently from the already studded Miami heavy scene. Their beast of a sound is like a hairier reboot of prime-era Helmet with the danger and claws of noise rock. And springing faithfully from the My Bloody Valentine heritage, Philadelphia's Nothing (pictured) are one of the most noted neo-shoegaze bands today. Both have impressed here as openers. But on the strength of their own recent albums, they're now ready to become leading bands. Individually, each of these acts would be worth the trip out. Collectively, they form a must-see bill that's not just stacked but also beautifully varied.
