PETE COTTELL
7:30 pm, Sunday September 29 | $8 advance, $10 day of show.
Mission Theater and Pub
1624 NW Glisan St.
 

[POLITICO-FOLK] Emo lifer-turned-acoustic troubadour is a familiar trope, but Ian MacKaye refuses to go over the hill quietly. His rabble-rousing days in Minor Threat and Fugazi, in which he played the tightly wound agitator waiting to unload, may be over, but don’t expect the mellow aspects of his duo the Evens to be mistaken for “boring.” With ex-Warmers drummer Amy Farina manning the kit and sharing vocal duties, the stripped-down pair functions as evidence that MacKaye still has plenty of fuel left in the tank, and he’s been gracious enough to opt out of diluting it with string arrangements and other dalliances that signify an aging music that’s gotten too tired to rock.
