Hailing from the Washington DC area, The Max Levine Ensemble is a power trio that specialize in socially-aware pop punk. Their infectious blend of 80's hardcore with pop inflections is enough to make anyone want to get a little bint rowdy or at least cause a bit of mischief. The heavily DIY three-piece started in 2000 as a cover band specializing in songs their good friend, Max Levine, requested. Though they have concentrated on originals since then, they kept the name as an homage to their friend. These guys are everything a good punk pop band should be - literate and political while still being fun.
They will be playing the Turnaround(180 Winspear Ave) tonight with The Crackhorse and Mapmaker. If you get there before the first band starts playing, the show is only $3, otherwise, you can get in for $5.
