The Messthetics


The Messthetics

The power trio featuring Fugazi rhythm section veterans Joe Lally and Brendan Canty alongside virtuosic guitarist Anthony Pirog return to SPACE

After their self-titled Dischord release last year, the Messthetics have been widening the reach of a decisive instrumental music that so far, they have only shared with a privileged handful of east coast and southern audiences. Pirog's sound has been acclaimed as "a remarkable distillation of about 60 years of electric guitar history" by the New York Times, and the band itself has been acclaimed as "the band every Fugazi fan needs in their life." 

The last time drummer Brendan Canty and bassist Joe Lally were in a band together, they were the rhythmic architects for Fugazi, an organization whose decade and a half of disciplined progressivism provided a necessary bridge between the zenith of late-punk expression and everything alternative in rock that followed. In 2016, the two were enlisted by guitarist Anthony Pirog in a conspiracy to subvert and reimagine the power trio, bringing fully into the 21st Century a form that may have reached near perfection with Hendrix’s Band of Gypsys on the very first day of the 1970s.
