Hot Water Music


Gainesville isn't a city known for its post-hardcore or punk scenes, so it would be a safe bet that native sons Hot Water Music had to work hard to get noticed during their mid-'90s formative years, but hard work is something the band seem unafraid of. They hadn't released an album of new material since 2004, and officially broke up "for good" in 2006. Three of the members started the Draft, while singer Chuck Ragan also folked it up with Rumbleseat. However, the band returned showing little rust last year with Exister, which found them a little older, a little wiser, but no worse for wear — the bouncy post-hardcore energy still intact and the pop-punk leanings still as catchy as ever. Their time away from each other coupled with work on other projects seems to have given the group new life. With La Dispute and the Menzingers. 18+. (Photo by dan from Jersey City)
