No Hoax played its first live shows just three years ago, and quickly established itself as a fierce and refreshing presence in Madison's music community. Rachel Kent's bellowing vocals, Tyler Spatz's thrashing guitar riffs, and the pulverizing rhythm section of drummer Ben Brooks and bassist Anthony Moraga all made for punk songs that blasted the cobwebs out of listeners' skulls with a minimum of pretense and a fearsome emotional undertow. Well, No Hoax recently posted a terse announcement that things are over, and that this opening slot for Southern California punk veterans Agent Orange will be its last show; the band members haven't said much on record about why they're breaking up. No Hoax released a debut EP in 2016 and plan to have a full-length cassette available at this show. Members will still be actively playing in bands including Poney and Cave Curse, and might be getting some new projects off the ground soon too. —Scott Gordon
