The Fugazi 13 Songs All Star Band tonight at Will’s Pub
Friday, Nov. 2 â€“ The Fugazi 13 Songs All Star Band
1042 N. Mills Ave.
We miss Fugazi. We miss the all-ages, $5 shows and the no-bullshit, DIY aesthetic. Itâ€™s been 10 years â€“ 10 years! â€“ since the band performed its last show, and 23 years (yikes) since they released 13 Songs, an album that helped cement the bandâ€™s reputation as one of the most socially conscious and musically revolutionary American punk bands of their time. Also: They just fucking rocked, and we expect that tonightâ€™s DIY performance, being organized at Willâ€™s Pub by local musician, bartender and man about town Phil Longo, will do Fugaziâ€™s memory justice. According to Longo, the Fugazi 13 Songs All-Star Band (featuring Mike Levin of the New Lows and Shyster, Patrick Oâ€™Neal, former drummer for Andy Matchett and the Minks, Longo and some â€śguestsâ€ť) will play the 13 Songs album in its entirety, as well as a few other songs. In keeping with Fugazi tradition, itâ€™s only $5 to get in, and a portion of the proceeds will go toward the Ralph Ameduri Scholarship Fund. â€“ Erin Sullivan
