Who Downtown Boys / Lunch Cult / Bad Leg When Friday, May 29, 2015 8:30pm – $8 – 18+ Where SPACE Gallery (map) 538 Congress St Portland, ME, USA 04101 Other InfoDowntown Boys / Lunch Cult / Bad Leg “Downtown Boys are a bilingual political sax punk party from Providence, RI, featuring members of What Cheer Brigade. They write songs about smashing the prison-industrial complex, racism, queerphobia, capitalism, fascism, boredom, and all things people tell us that try to close our minds, eyes, and hearts. Following right in step with their punk-rock forefathers and mothers, their blistering and inspiring performances challenge audiences and throw them back into the pit when things get too heavy. Their new LP Full Communism drops on May 4 via Don Giovanni (Screaming Females, Jeffrey Lewis, Mitski).

They’ll be joined by experimental, garbáge-rockers Lunch Cult and fresh Portland punk power trio Bad Leg.”
