Making their way to South Florida this weekend are the Deftones, Thrice, Atreyu, Story of the Year, As I Lay Dying, Funeral for a Friend, the Receiving End of Sirens, American Eyes, Adair, Greeley Estates, Street Drum Corps, and the Smashup. However, trying to parse the hardcore from the heart-core isnt so black and white. These bands run the gamut of metal, hardcore, post-hardcore, and punk. And many of them, such as Thrice and the Receiving End of Sirens, possess all the eclecticism of indie-rock -- but without the arty posturing. Of course, for fans of Atreyu and As I Lay Dying, anything short of an all-out metal attack is, you know, for posers.
