If you like Rock, avant-guard Jazz, Pop and Folk...you'll definitely like the Mars Volta, a band formed from the ashes of one of the most respected bands in the post-hardcore community, At The Drive In.
Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez's live shows are simply unique. They are able to merge technique with energy, live jamm sessions and the most complex guitar work you'll ever have the opportunity to witness.
Call them self indulgent and you'd be right, but when it's this fascinating I think it's allowed. Don't miss the incredible Mars Volta live!
