Biography

The Evens are a Washington D.C. duo, formed in the fall of 2001, comprising of Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi, The Teen Idles, Embrace) and Amy Farina (The Warmers, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists). After Fugazi entered a hiatus, the Evens began practicing extensively, and eventually played a few shows and recorded a self-titled album, released in March 2005 on MacKaye's label, Dischord Records. The Evens are known for their unusual choices in venues for performances 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".
