New York’s B Boys (Andrew Kerr, Brendon Avalos, Britton Walker) have toured the U.S. and Europe extensively, supporting acts such as Parquet Courts, Merchandise, Shame, Sunflower Bean, and Oh Sees. Now they are taking their vigorous shows to the West Coast, co-headlining with Brooklyn punk band Bodega.
Today, B Boys bring their brash live set to you with the digital release of Live at Rough Trade NYC, previously available exclusively from Rough Trade on limited edition vinyl. The set was recorded in June 2018 at the Captured Tracks Brooklyn Sound event in celebration of the label’s 10 year anniversary. Capturing the raw dynamism of B Boys’ live performance, the tracks span both their 2016 EP No Worry No Mind and the highly praised 2017 debut album, Dada. Stream HERE.
B Boys find inspiration in the chaos that surrounds them: the aggressive attitude and sonic lawlessness of the city they live, work, and breathe in every day. Their raw, yet meticulous style is characterized by rhythmic complexity, commanding riffs, and introspective lyrics that are as playful and self-aware as they are cutting.
