In 2016, when the members of Destroy Boys were still Sacramento area high school kids, they got a shout-out by Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong in a Rolling Stone cover story. This had a lot of people wondering: Who is this band with the awesome name and why is Billie Joe talking about them? Sacramento punk rockers were already well acquainted with the group; its urgent garage-punk sound was a hit in the vibrant music scene. No longer a high school band or based in Sacramento — the band now resides in the East Bay — Destroy Boys is only getting tighter and more urgent in its performances. At this upcoming Gilman show, the band will be releasing its new EP Crybaby/Vixen, because of course that’s what Destroy Boys would name its new EP.
