Behind the Scenes With Downtown Boys

Anyone who’s seen Downtown Boys knows that the Providence political punk collective are a ball of white light on stage, bringing the kind of crackling energy that spurs people not just to dance, but to tear down a wall or two. The group derives so much of their on-stage power from their off-stage friendship that, when they’re not performing, that light doesn’t dim—it just gets more diffuse, translating to easy smiles and thoughtful conversation.

Photographer Chona Kasinger spent some time with the band at their recent show in Brooklyn at Market Hotel: loading in, relaxing together, and bringing the full power of their performance to the stage. Our exclusive photo gallery is below:
