Concocting a maximalist blend of punk, klezmer, ska, soul and jazz, New York band World/Inferno Friendship Society has spent nearly 25 years leaving a trail of infamy on the touring circuit, its anarcho-theatrical stage show sparking joy and havoc in equal measure. With a seventh full-length, All Borders Are Porous to Cats, on the way this Friday, the group hits local DIY space Bombs Away Collective as part of a routine East Coast jaunt. They’ll be joined on the bill by long-running Athens punk act Triangle Fire, as well as Greenville, SC, band Horrible Girl and the Hot Mess.
