Q&A with Ian MacKaye

I totally meant for that title to rhyme. ian mckaye

Frank Fineis ’13 and our Dearest Leader Zach Schonfeld ’13 has the latest in hardcore music-related Wesleyan events, as always. But this one is actually pretty awesome:

Ian MacKaye is the famously uncompromising former frontman of Fugazi and Minor Threat, current co-member (with his partner Amy Farina) of The Evens, and the founder of DC-based DIY label Dischord Records. He comes to shed wisdom on Wesleyan a few months after the release of The Evens’ latest album, The Odds—and shortly after the tenth anniversary of Fugazi’s hiatus. If you have even the slightest interest in hardcore, 1990s American indie underground, or DIY music industry ethics, this one’s worth your while.

This event is free and open to the public, so arrive early. It will also be entirely question-and-answer format, so please bring questions for Mr. MacKaye.

Before you go, you should probably enjoy some essential, required listening.
