I've been hearing good things about Flint's Ana Kills for months, so I'm excited to finally see the guys perform at Dirt Fest.

The group plays a grungy concoction of punk and rock 'n' roll and pays homage to everyone from Nirvana to Pennywise to the Used. Stream a collection of their songs via the Soundcloud player below.

Oh, yeah, and one of the guys in the band is wearing a Ramones T-shirt in Ana Kills' press photo. So, they get the Anne stamp of approval.

Dirt Fest 2014 takes place Aug. 9 at the Birch Run Expo Center in Birch Run. Headliners include Killswitch Engage, Sid Wilson of Slipknot, Powerman 5000, Hed Pe, Nonpoint, Chimaira, Battlecross, Gemini Syndrome, Tantric, Smile Empty Soul, Like a Storm, Nothingmore, Eyes Set to Kill, Gift Giver, Blue Felix, Psychostick and many more.
