Though lyrically far too convinced of the importance of being earnest, New Jersey's screamo poster boys, Thursday, have mastered the art of tricky time signatures and cathartic instrumental bloodletting. Here the group plays a free outdoor show with bands including The Hotelier and PUP. The latter's 2014 self-titled debut was a thoroughly brilliant punk romp that garnered its fair share of breathless praise—momentum that continues with the Toronto foursome’s barreling follow-up The Dream Is Over.
