Half of Fugazi and a guitar virtuoso unleashed their instrumental jazz-rock amalgamation on Seattle music fans June 23 at the Vera Project. Messthetics -- Brendan Canty on drums, Joe Lally on bass and Anthony Pirog on the six string -- delivered songs from their Dischord Records debut LP and more during an hour-long set.

Canty discussed the band in a pre-gig interview:

"In Messthetics, we've been able to come up with things very quickly (snaps his fingers) and that's a real key -- not just the writing, but you can improvise together. Everybody's excited about it equally, everybody (has) a different but equal job to do in that band. And that makes it really balanced and lovely. So yeah, it's been nice. I really cherish this group for that reason."

Time Pieces, an instrumental prog rock n' roll outfit featuring members of Band of Horses, Minus the Bear, Six Part Seven and Wild Arms, opened the gig.
