A Reunited Boys Life Revisit Their Material in Williamsburg

October 20th, 2015

Brandon Butler (vocals and guitar), Joe Winkle (guitar), John Rejba (bass) and John Anderson (drums) formed the guitar-driven emo quartet Boys Life more than two decades ago in Kansas City, Mo. Showcasing their energetic but dissonant, crescendo-filled sound, they released a pair of albums, Boys Life and Departures and Landfalls (stream them below), before calling it quits after just four years, in 1997. And with their second LP getting reissued on vinyl, Boys Life, ready to revisit their music with renewed energy, have reunited to play just a handful of shows—the last of which is tomorrow night at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Josh Berwanger Band, out of Kansas City, Kan., open the show.
