Lansdale, Pennsylvania's LMI is tough to pin down stylistically, so please don't take that big "PUNK" above this write-up too literally. LMI isn't punk in the sense that they trade in three-chord anthems and bratty dispositions, but rather it has a youthful willingness to try just about anything under the heavy music sun. Its most recent record, 2017's "Far Beyond Nothing," is a violent ode to forward momentum, taking the dinosaur percussion of bands like Karp and Big Business and shooting it full of the signature hardcore energy of bands like Old Wounds and Angel Du$t.
LMI will play with TreadWater, The ILL, and Dogmath on Saturday, December 2, at The Vineyard Community Space, 836 South Clinton Avenue. 6 p.m. $5 suggested donation. facebook.com/vineyardcommunityspace; lmiband.bandcamp.com.
