No Age @ MHOW, 9/5/2013
While the crowd members went for each others' jugulars (or whatever body parts they managed to make contact with) or danced along ecstatically sans pain, No Age properly fed the crowd's appreciation with track after track of nearly pure distortion and noise instrumentals. Although Spunt shouted into his mic, his words were just murmurs against the multi-stack drumstick smashes and distortion-loaded power chords. Midway through the set, Spunt announced it was time for "some new songs," and abandoned his drum kit temporarily for the bass. During No Generator, the low but heavy bass riffs brashly coupled with guitar chops, shook the venue (and even rattled the drummer-less drums).
