Neither punk nor garage nor some heavily filtered Instagram approximating college rock, proud weirdo duo No Age have arrived at a partially pasteurized version of all three genres on their latest, An Object. That’s not to say they’ve lost all their sourness; it’s just that An Object finally finds the prickly pair sticking to what many people might call “listenable,” with a few wacky moments of fuzz thrown in for the diehards. It’s a more focused variation on their usual theme, and, as its title suggests, it’s up to the listener—and in tonight’s case, the concertgoer—to parse its meaning. With Ornament and Regal Degal.
