Dean Spunt of No Age on the importance of DIY

No Age (due tonight at The Bluebird Theater) isn't a band that has hit the mainstream yet, but it has enjoyed an unexpected rise to prominence as a noisy pop band, making art grounded in notion of doing things your own way -- regardless of whether or not it's met with the stamp of approval of mainstream society.
