Unhinged Cali emocore types Joyce Manor did the impossible with their last three albums, reinvigorating pop-punk with a sound both comfortingly familiar and refreshingly original. And if punk-bro machismo turns you off, worry not—frontman Barry Johnson instituted a stage-diving ban at his concerts after witnessing flying punks crush unsuspecting showgoers. Christian Holden holds it down as The Hotelier in the opening set with blistering emo catharses constructed from shout-along choruses, call-and-response and the well-timed hoarsely-screamed "fuck!"
