The Messthetics – Mythomania (SofaBurn Session)

Dischord instrumental band The Messthetics are touring far and wide in early 2019. The merging of guitar shredder Anthony Pirog with Fugazi’s rhythm section, Brendan Canty on drums and Joe Lally on bass, made quite an amazing band straddling a nonexistent line between jazz and rock. As they tour the world on their 2018 self-titled album, they recently stopped by Candyland Studio in Cincinnati to record a live session for SofaBurn Records. We’d quite like to get our hands on the whole thing soon, but for now enjoy this up close live performance of the album’s opening track “Mythomania”. Pro tip: you’ll want to grab tickets for the Messthetics opening for Ex Hex at the 9:30 Club on May 10th as soon as they go on sale, so don’t nap.
