Head-bangers and angsty Millennials rejoice, because The Ritz in Ybor City has a jammin’ show of post-hardcore alternative rock happening this weekend that will blow your quirky crew socks off. The lineup is a real face-melter with Covet, Thousand Below, Hail the Sun, Don Broco and headliner, Dance Gavin Dance rockin’ the night away. This concert is part of Dance Gavin Dance’s Artificial Selection tour, so expect the best of the best. 

Doors open at 4 p.m. and the show starts at 4:45 p.m. Scrounge around in your closet for your favorite all-black outfit and get there on time to guarantee a decent spot on the floor and a cold PBR in your hand (don’t worry, you’ll be among other hipsters who appreciate the classics).

Covet will most likely open this concert, so expect a musically easy-going start with their signature math rock sound. They’ll get you in the mood for when something a little more intense hits the stage. Hail the Sun and Thousand Below will bring the fist-pumping action that defines a great rock show. Whether you’re into the alternative and sometimes cheeky British rock of Don Broco, or the post-hardcore, screamo sound of Dance Gavin Dance, this show is sure to strike a chord with any music-lover. Tickets for this jam fest are still available and are definitely in high demand, so grab one while you can. May we suggest making the most of your journey into the great heart of Tampa?
