formed from fugazi’s dynamic rhythm section of Brendan Canty (drums) and Joe Lally (bass), and Anthony Pirog (guitar), the instrumental trio perform a powerful set of probing experimental jazz-rock that we’re all drooling over.

Brendan Canty and Joe Lally performed in Fugazi from its inception in 1987 to its period of hiatus in 2002. This is the first band they’ve had together since then. Anthony Pirog is a jazz and experimental guitarist based in Washington, D.C. One half of the duo Janel & Anthony, he has emerged as a primary figure in the city’s out-music community. The trio’s debut includes nine songs recorded at Canty’s practice space throughout 2017, live and mostly without overdubs. It’s a snapshot of a band dedicated to the live ideal, where structure begets improvisation.
