Photos of the Mauls at DC9

The Mauls are the fence that runs between punk and loud indie rock, and will appeal to both camps.

Listen to Fugazi’s First-Ever Demo

The full recording, originally a free cassette tape in 1988, is streaming online before Dischord's Nov. 18 release.

Why This is the Perfect Time for a Dischord Remaster of Slant 6’s Soda Pop * Rip Off

The band was pigeonholed as riot grrrl because of its all-female lineup, a question of gender politics that's still relevant today.

New Fugazi Music! (Well, Very Old Fugazi Music!)

Fugazi's technical hiatus seems pretty permanent these days, but between the nearly 900 recordings the group has released through its live archive and the various musical projects of its members, fans haven't exactly been hurting. They'll probably perk up at this, though: This winter, Dischord Records plans to release First Demo, an early recording that's never been [...]

When D.C. Punks Were Prizefighters

In an exhibit two summers ago at Georgetown's Addison/Ripley Fine Art, a little slice of D.C. music history might have gone over the heads of some gallery-goers.

So [...]

Director Jeff Nichols on Fugazi, Southern Literature, and Mud

Jeff Nichols isn’t the type of director to make a light film. His first feature, 2007’s Shotgun Stories, a terse family drama about a blood feud between two sets of half brothers in rural Arkansas, became one of the most talked-about films of the year and established him as a fresh new voice in the [...]

E.D. Sedgwick Wears White, Discusses We Wear White

There's something vaguely "Tim and Eric" about this promotional video, in which E.D. Sedgwick chitchats about elements of his upcoming album, We Wear White, which Dischord Records will release on Nov. 20. If it seems mildly un-Dischord to make a promotional video and also make it weird, consider that Sedgwick has always been weird.
