Before creating The Messthetics with the multi-talented guitarist, Anthony Pirog, Brendan Canty and Joe Lally spent most of the 80s, 90s and early 2000s playing on stages all-over the world as part of the infamous Punk-Rock group, Fugazi. In 2003 the group took a consensual hiatus from recording and performing together, with many of the members delving into various solo gigs and collaborations. But as they say “distance makes the heart grow fonder,” Canty and Lally chose to rekindle their collaborative percussion section in 2016 this time under the guise of their new 3-piece band, including Pirog, The Messthetics. Their latest self-titled album was released to wide acclaim and they’ll be playing it at the Hideout all night this Saturday, May 5th. Click here for tickets.
