Ian Mackaye of legendary post-hardcore band Fugazi is confirmed for an exclusive Q+A following a screening of Jem Cohen’s 1999 film Instrument at this year’s inaugural Restless Natives Festival in Glasgow.
Instrument was a collaboration between Jem Cohen and Fugazi, with the title of the film is taken from a track from their 1993 album In On The Killtaker. Following the screening, Ian Mackaye will answer fans’ questions live via Skype from a radio station in Washington.
The screening at Restless Natives is scheduled for 7.30pm on Thursday 12th May at the African and Caribbean Centre – tickets can be purchased from the Restless Natives website.
“Given Ian’s decades of experience within the DIY community in Washington D.C and his role (both via his bands and the Dischord label) as an inspiration for thousands of purveyors of independent music and art, he is the perfect participant in an event looking to strengthen the fortunes of those communities within our own country,” comments festival organiser Chris Cusack.
The festival already boasts a strong line-up including Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah, LAW, Cardiff’s alt rockers Future of the Left, Sheffield mathcore champions Rolo Tomassi, Canadian composer Tim Hecker, electronic maverick Blanck Mass, Chicago favourites Into It. Over It, US cult heroes The Hotelier and Glasgow’s own Tuff Love, United Fruit, Happy Meals, Spinning Coin and Nightwave.
