Jan. 28: No Sir at the Arlene Francis Center


Holy Land, the debut EP by Santa Rosa band No Sir, traffics in the unglossy strain of hardcore reminiscent of smoky warehouses and dangerous clientele—in other words, the type of furious, heavy hardcore before mass-marketers exploited the genre. (It’s safe to say that the No Sir song “The Kingston Beat” is not, as the title might hint, reggae.) With members of All Teeth, Not to Reason Why and others, No Sir play a record-release show this week that doubles as an art show, featuring visual work by Ross Farrar (Ceremony), Adam Vass (Da Doom Crew) and band members. The first 50 attendees get a silkscreened poster when No Sir play with Not to Reason Why, Code Orange Kids, Xerxes and Youths on Saturday, Jan. 28, at the Arlene Francis Center. 99 Sixth St., Santa Rosa. 7pm. $8. 707.528.3009.
