Local rockers Kal Marks play "Love is a Song, Not an Answer" at Berfest at the Middle East Upstairs on 1/24/14.
I got a chance to speak with Mark Perro, one of the founding members of Brooklyn-based punk outfit The Men, in anticipation for their upcoming show at the Great Scott on 3/2 and their new LP Tomorrow's Hits, which will be released two days later on Sacred Bones.
