Indie-rock icons the Minutemen once sang “our band could be your life.” That meant playing basements, touring for measly per-diems in a rusty van, wearing the same secondhand T-shirt and jeans for days, and putting every spare dollar, ounce of sweat and decibel of volume into making D.I.Y. cassettes, seven-inch records and full-length albums.

Boon the proud patriarch of their punk rock cause.
