Noise Pop Festival 2018 Presents: No Age 

When: Tue., Feb. 20, 7 p.m. 2018
Price: $15
Los Angeles’ No Age didn’t invent noise-pop, but in the past 13 years, the band’s members have been huge advocates of the genre, exploring its many corners with curiosity and emotion. The band’s latest full-length, Snares Like a Haircut, is a fresh, vibrant addition to its already excellent discography. It perfectly exemplifies just what makes noise-pop so compelling: its juxtaposition of oppositions — finding the line that separates dissonant noise and harmonious melody. But underneath that, it’s really the duality of ugliness and beauty, which the band uses to create a lot of tension on this record. It’s fueled by punk rock energy and blunt honesty, and is thrilling within the first few minutes. This is the band’s first record in five years and, to use a cliché, a “return to form” in its simple no-nonsense approach.
