Waking Windows presents Downtown Boys 

When: Mon., Aug. 14, 7:30 p.m. 2017
Price: $12/14

Fightin' Words

With wars raging around the world and in the White House, the colloquialism “pick your battles” feels antiquated in the 21st century. Yet Providence, R.I., punk rockers Downtown Boys want to simultaneously take on every fight imaginable. Why turn the other cheek when it’s so much more satisfying to make venomous, acidic music that indicts the world’s insidious problems? With brief, turbo-charged songs, the quintet confronts some of today’s most hot-button issues, such as queer-phobia, fascism, racism and, in their words, “all things people use to try to close our minds, eyes and hearts.” Put up your dukes (metaphorically) with Downtown Boys on Monday, August 14, at ArtsRiot in Burlington.
