It once seemed unthinkable that we’d ever again hear from arty Swedish hardcore band Refused, but what’s this? Yes, it’s the third local show from a group that (like so many others) accrued a cult following after breaking up in the late ’90s. This gig is among the first performances at a snazzy new outdoor venue near the previous Williamsburg Waterfront locale. Given the headliner’s angsty angularity, this one doesn’t exactly promise fun in the sun, but you won’t hear any complaints from us. Setting the stage is Off!, an awesomely obnoxious punk outfit featuring former Black Flag shouter Keith Morris. Williamsburg Park (ticketmaster.com). July 18 at 5:30pm. Enter below to win!
