Downtown Boys

Sax-fueled political punks Downtown Boys are going on tour in 2016, including a run with Sheer Mag, who they put on their favorite music of 2015 list. Sheer Mag aren't billed for their NYC show though (neither is anyone else), which happens February 27 at Baby's All Right. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Downtown Boys' debut album Full Communism came out earlier this year on Don Giovanni (it landed on Pitchfork's honorable mentions list). Stream a few tracks off of it, with their list of tour dates, below...
