Comprising members of a few other standout Madison punk bands (Fire Heads, Wood Chickens, Coordinated Suicides, etc.), Dumb Vision play with a peculiar and vital balance of sharp hooks and circuit-frying noise. The band's self-titled debut album, released in 2016, charges into scruffy sheets of distortion and reverb, but tracks like "Leave It Alone" and "Warm Meat" also manage to keep bright power-pop melodies at their center, over rhythms that strike a nice balance between aggression and swing. The band released a tape of demos last year, and have been working on a second album to be released on Big Neck Records (a Virginia label that has also put out music from Fire Heads and Wood Chickens), and they play this Mickey's show in the middle of a Midwest tour. —Scott Gordon
