Downtown Boys

April 19 @ 8:00 pm

Downtown Boys are a six-piece band out of Rhode Island, who back their politics with a barrage of punk energy and not one but two saxophones. Half of the tracks on their first full-length, Full Communism, get their point across in less than two minutes, whether decrying racism or supporting the inheritance tax. Singer Victoria Ruiz shifts from English to Spanish, often in mid-song, and shares vocals with guitarist Joey DeFrancesco—the two met while working to unionize hotel employees. Their cover of Springsteen’s  “Dancing in the Dark” adds a taste of “working people living for the weekend” to the original’s pop bounce, which is probably closer to what the Boss meant anyway.
