Male Bonding and Cold Pumas
Doors 8:00 pm
No Age: the name alone suggests multiple meanings and possible interpretations?timeless, ageless, anonymous, free from restriction, something positive from something negative? a profound strength in its simplicity. Likewise, the Los Angeles duo consisting of drummer/vocalist Dean Spunt and guitarist Randy Randall is many things at once even as it embraces its minimalism.
Spiritual heirs to both Thurston Moore?s wide-eyed experimentalism and the all-encompassing, stark DIY art-is-life aesthetic of the Crass collective, No Age is the kind of band that inspires its audience without affectation, without cynicism. Its live shows are an exploration of possibilities: a guitar laid over a resonating drum head, effect loops woven together like beautiful harmonies, pop songs as performance art, a duo that sounds like the gale force of rock history delivered through a wind tunnel.
