About Downtown Boys:
“Since we live in an age in which silence is not only criminal but suicidal, [we] have been making as much noise as [we] can” - James Baldwin

Downtown Boys are a bilingual political sax punk party from Providence, RI. They write songs about smashing the prison-industrial complex, racism, queerphobia, capitalism, fascism, boredom, and all things people tell us that try to close our minds, eyes, and hearts.

They released a self titled 7” on Sister Polygon records in February 2014, and their full length LP Full Communism was released in May 2015 on Don Giovanni Records to enthusiastic reviews. The record is filled with danceable, sax-filled anthems with vocals sung and screamed in Spanish and English.
The band is known for their live performances, which are equal parts punk show, political rally, and religious revival.

Frontwoman Victoria Ruiz delivers moving speeches between songs, working the crowd into an angry but hopeful frenzy. The songs themselves are delivered with an earnestness, fun, and intensity that’s stunned audiences throughout North America.

Rookie Mag praised the band, saying, “In a punk scene that can sometimes seem stale and beholden to trends that have been regurgitating themselves for decades, Providence, Rhode Island’s Downtown Boys are a beam of radical energy.”
