I am a photojournalist covering Hevy Fest...

I became aware of the festival because of Thrice, my favorite band of the 2000's. I also plan to take photos and write about the Get Up Kids, the Dillinger Escape Plan, Coheed and Cambria, and the Fall of Troy. The rest of the bands playing the fest not only have I never heard any music from, I also have not even heard OF them. So as fans, who should I see and cover?

* 2. Would you mind elaborating on some of your favorite bands above? Where are they from? Why do you like them? Why should I see their shows and write about them?
