GUY PICCIOTTO: FUGAZI – INSTRUMENT (FILM / Q&A)
For his first Australian appearance since playing here in 1997, Guy Picciotto, the influential co-frontman and guitarist for DIY hardcore heroes Fugazi presents a screening of the band’s definitive documentary Instrument followed by an in-depth Q&A.
Officially on hiatus since 2003, the Washington D.C. quartet revolutionised the music industry by shunning it altogether – playing only all ages shows and a low ticket price, no merchandise and no middle men. Forging a furious sound with elements of punk, rock, dub, reggae and experimental music, the band’s six album stretch is lovingly captured on tape. From their unique chemistry in the studio to history making performances and the inspired politics that fired up a nation, see the Fugazi story in full glory and hear it straight from one of the most unique voices in independent music today.
