Mission Theater

Operating more or less under the radar, in the shadows of the behemoth Fugazi, under the steadied gaze of punk elder statesman Ian MacKaye, the Evens have quietly forged their own following. With MacKaye singing and strumming baritone guitar and vocalist/drummer Amy Farina of the Warmers, the Evens tackle minimalist sonic terrain that approaches the malaise of slacker rock. But nothing MacKaye does could be construed as lethargic, and the Evens have developed a reputation (not unlike Fugazi) of performing at nontraditional venues, for all ages and charging next to nothing to watch them perform. The duo's most recent album, 2012's The Odds, is as good an introduction to the band's barebones aesthetic as any. RYAN J. PRADO
