Foster Body, Little Sister, and Blank Square 

A punk show at a new, radically inclusive salon and art space.

Notaflof Collective Community Salon & Artspace is a new venue, community center, and hair salon whose name stands for “no one turned away for lack of funds.” Like the acronym suggests, the new space has an unconventional, somewhat anti-capitalist business model that enables it to provide services on a donation basis. So far, Notaflof has held many events that promote radical inclusivity — such as its recent clothing swap and donation-based manicure day, both of which were specifically for queer and trans people. The venue also offers affordable tailoring and haircuts, and throws shows on a regular basis. Its next event on April 9 features Utah punk band Foster Body, whose punchy guitar riffs and campy, call-and-response vocals evoke Talking Heads and Devo. Little Sister, a garage pop trio from Union City, and San Francisco noise outfit Blank Square join Foster Body on the lineup.
