The Evens

The Evens are a Washington, D.C. indie-rock duo of musical partners Ian MacKaye (Fugazi, Minor Threat) and Amy Farina (formerly of The Warmers). After MacKaye’s band Fugazi entered a hiatus, the Evens began practicing extensively, and eventually played a few shows and recorded a self-titled album on MacKaye’s label, Dischord Records. They are known for their unusual choices in performance venues and the stylistic change from what many have dubbed the “D.C.” or “Dischord” sound. The Washington Post has described the sound as “what happens when post-hardcore becomes post-post-hardcore.
