Bilingual political punks Downtown Boys wrapped up their tour with Sheer Mag last month in continued support of last year’s debut album Full Communism. They start another world tour this month, kicking it off at the previously-announced WBAR-B-Q on April 23 with Japanese Breakfast and Antwon. As mentioned, the annual Barnard College show happens at the Columbia University campus this year. As always, it’s free, open to the public, and all ages.

They have another college show at NYU’s Grand Hall on April 26 with confrontational noise duo Uniform (ex-The Men, Drunkdriver) and Beat Detectives. That show is also free and open to the public. More info here.

After the tour ends, they play their label Don Giovanni’s New Alternative Music Fest, which goes down from September 16-18 at Convention Hall in Asbury Park. That fest also has a PS Eliot reunion, Girlpool, Screaming Females, Aye Nako, Big Eyes and much more. Tickets are on sale.
