Monday September 2 – No Age @ The Arts Exchange
With An Object, their fourth full-length album, No Age has forgone the straight and narrow route, landing in a strange and unexpected place, feet planted in fresh, fertile soil. Still, this is hardly a work of avant garde noise music or l’art concret. These songs are hummable, political, and recognizably punk. Plus these guys are known for their rowdy live shows! TIX are $10

Doors are at 8:30 PM, buy your TIX via the link below!
