NoMeansNo, Blood Beach and Wax Edison


Hawthorne Theatre (map) Southeast
Sat., Oct. 1, 8 p.m. 2011 21+


It's been said that NoMeansNo invented "math rock" back in '79, in which case it was probably done using an abacus. The Brothers Wright have been steering the Canadian trio though uncharted waters ever since, combining the power of punk with the elegance of jazz. The Canucks have a long paper trail of albums and singles and EPs dating back to 1980, although their output has slowed over the past five years. But NoMeansNo continues to tour, which is where you want to catch them anyway (their studio work has yet to capture the controlled chaos of their live shows). It's no wonder that bands (knowingly and unknowingly) continue to take lessons from these wily vets. MARK LORE
