NO is the new yes

When I spoke with Bradley Carter and Sean Stentz of NO a mere month ago, not many people knew who they were. The band had recently released its debut EP, Don’t Worry, We’ll Be Here Forever, and played only one legitimate show at Silverlake’s iconic venue, The Satellite. Since then, the anthematic quintet has been stealing the hearts of Angelinos with its powerful, larger-than-life sound (not to mention a damn good live show). The band also found it important to make its debut a free download, encouraging music fans to listen without paying, and, thus, rapidly growing its fanbase. As a result, the indie rockers have landed gigs at staple LA venues such as The Echoplex, Bootleg Bar, and a Monday residency at The Echo in March. You can catch them in action on Friday, January 6th, at The Echoplex. Doors open at 8 pm. $10. 18+. – Katrina Nattress
