About This Event

No Age—consisting of guitarist Randy Randall and drummer and vocalist Dean Spunt—brings their cacophonic sound to MFA with the second edition of Score for the Day Before. The program combines a live, improvised concert with a road movie filmed the previous day during their drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Reflecting the group's do-it-yourself ethos, No Age records the concert to cassette tape and create a series of limited-edition duplicate cassettes to be distributed to attendees immediately following the show. Cassette tape availability is limited. Please select the General Admission + Tape option at checkout. Score for the Day Before is one of three events that examine the concept of performance as edition, curated by visual artist Jonn Herschend for the McEvoy Foundation for the Arts' summer exhibition What is an edition, anyway?. Encompassing literary, musical, and comedic practice, the events acknowledge performance's implicit conundrum between poles of repetitive and unique actions. Original, limited-edition posters, designed by Herschend and THE THING Quarterly co-founder Will Rogan, are released at each event and installed in the gallery on the day of the performance. No Age is an American punk band from Los Angeles consisting of Randy Randall on guitar and Dean Spunt on drums and vocals. They dance around the dualities of their cacophonic sound in two-step, lock and repeat, specializing in experimental sounds as popular music and born of D.I.Y culture and a penchant for loud and soft tones that leave a physical impact. Active since 2006, No Age has released five full length L.P.s and enough singles, E.P.s, compilation tracks, remixes, and demos to fill a compact two-door rental car on labels such as Sub Pop. Fat Cat, and Drag City. Their celebrated, improvisatory performances have been featured at such prestigious institutions as MoMA, MoCA, The Tate Modern, Food Fight, Bethnal Green Working Man's Club, and Queen of Sheeba Ethiopian Restaurant.
