A few days ago, we presented you with a list of 10 artists playing Firefly you shouldn’t miss. Today, we’re going to add one more band to that list, the Philly rock and roll band Nothing. Nothing have released one of the best albums of the year so far, Guilty of Everything, and since March, when they released the album, they’ve been touring like crazy, increasingly adding passionate new fans (and maybe an earache or two) along the way. Spin Magazine recently called their album one of the most overlooked albums of 2014. Vice insists “Philly’s best shoegaze band is here to knock you over.” They played an amazing set at SXSW to thousands of confused people at The Fader Fort. Heck, they even got dissed by Pitchfork. They’re really good at good at throwing their guitars. In honor of the band playing Dover, Delaware’s Firefly Music Festival this weekend, we decided to present you with 10 reasons you should stop at absolutely nothing to see Nothing at Firefly. They play Sunday at 11:30AM. If you’re still awake in your tent, they promise to wake you up.

1. Nothing concerts make the perfect date nights for Grim Reapers

2. They destroy people’s ears with their high voltage shoegaze rock

3. Their pre-show warmup routine consists of an alcohol infused yoga session.

4. Kurt Vile makes a cameo in the “Bent Nail” music video.

5. Christina Belles, an avid fan of Nothing, wants the band to play her wedding so badly that she’ll pay for the band’s booze and doesn’t mind if they slap her grandma.

Sorry grams.

6. Their fans like to have their skulls beaten with guitars.

7. After they beat your skull with a guitar, they will melt it…

8. …which probably explains why you should bring a helmet to their shows

9. Fans have to seriously hold it in when they play. Literally.

10. Seeing Nothing is definitely better than getting your body painted at Firefly.
