OFF! was formed in Los Angeles in 2009 from members of Black Flag, Hot Snakes, Burning Bridges, and Redd Kross. The eclectic group has four EPs, which they sell together as one set, and just recently released a self-titled album. Their music is creative, animated, and hardcore. OFF!’s energy and soul is evident throughout their bitter lyrics, which are likely to appeal to many listeners worldwide. The band will be performing at the Bowery Ballroom, in New York, on May 29. Show starts at 8 p.m.; tickets are $18.50 each.
