EMO | KVLT Daddy 

Something interesting happens a little over a minute into "The Crone," the lead track on Syracuse-based emo upstarts KVLT Daddy's 2017 EP, "Dreaming in Dog Years": at the beginning of an already uptempo verse, singer and guitarist Kyle Beam throws down an unabashed metal riff. It's the sort of palm-muted, double-time thrash riff you'd expect more from the Municipal Wastes and Iron Reagans of the world, but it totally works. This bizarre dichotomy of the grim and the pouty is par for the course for a band who cites only two other bands as influences: Snowing (twinkly pop-punk) and Weakling (hyper-punishing black metal).

KVLT Daddy will perform with TreadWater, Magoozler, and Hornet's Nest on Thursday, February 22, at The Vineyard Community Space, 836 South Clinton Avenue. 6 p.m. $5 suggested donation. All-ages.;
