For a band that seems to take every musical trend to ever have the term "hipster" slapped on it, throw it in a blender, and spit the resulting concoction from a straw, Dom sound oddly vital—probably because they're having tons of fun screwing with you. Reverb, lo-fi rawness, and scrappy dance elements are all present, but while you're rolling your eyes, the band is using these genre bites in service of some surprisingly springy songs that hide bloodshot eyes (sobbing or smoking, your call) with an enthusiastic middle finger. When the results are this electric, sincerity starts to look tragically boring. With Heavy Hawaii and Fort Wilson Riot. 18+.
