D.O.A. is a band that has been around for more than three decades, and has achieved legendary status in the punk and hardcore scenes. With the onset of the album "Hardcore '81," led by singer and songwriter Joey "Shithead" Keithley, D.O.A. helped publicize and popularize the hardcore genre in the 80's. The band has been well-respected and loved for both its music and its politics, being heavily involved in the anarchist scene and coining the phrase "talk minus action equals zero." After 35 years of playing together, D.O.A. has decided to call it quits this upcoming year, and will be stopping at the Bug Jar as part of their farewell tour.
D.O.A. performs with Bad Taste, The Emersons, and Borrowed Time on Tuesday, September 10, 9 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $13-$15. bugjar.com. Limited entry for under-21s.
