T h e - E v e n s .
Anyone wondering what Ian Mckaye, lead-singer of Minor Threat/Guitar player for Fugazi/Founder of Dischord Records, has been up to lately; look no further. The Evens are a punk rock-ish duo, formed of Ian on Baritone guitar and Amy Farina (The Warmers) on drums. They play a unique brand of acoustic punk the DC way. The Baritone guitar is a real show stealer and the drumming is the best i have ever heard coming from a lady. The songs are sung by both and are charged with socio-political commentary that never comes out as preachy. They've released two albums on Dischord which are both excellent and played a number of shows 'round the globe. Give em a go.
