Fugazi – Song#1 from the DVD – Instrument

Uncompromising standards directing their music forward, for me, Fugazi holds a special place in my life. It continues to inspire me to no end. A child of the 80s/90s, I gravitated towards them instead of the their former bands like Rites of Spring and Minor Threat. I did get a chance to see Ian McKaye of Minor Threat/Fugazi at the VFW in Charleston last year in his new band, the Evens. I managed to share a few words with him and although people assume he’s a bit self-righteous, in my experience, it couldnt be further from the truth.

Daily Festivall for me
9 AM – 3 PM
ART ON A STICK in Davis Park. Local artists offer their work and unused supplies yard sale fashion. Music by Josh Buskirk, Ryan Kennedy

Noon – 6 PM – this should be awesome!

Contest films will be shown and prizes awarded. At noon, there will also be a screening of the only documentary about West Virginia’s state capitol building produced by MotionMasters.
