Local news: Fugazi members to appear at National Gallery; "Pancake Mountain" to relaunch in Los Angeles

By David Malitz

A couple nuggets of local news...

- Members of Fugazi will make a rare public appearance together at the National Gallery of Art on Feb. 27 in conjunction with a screening of "Instrument," director Jem Cohen's 1999 documentary about the uber-legendary D.C. punk band. It is the second part of a two-part series, "Jem Cohen: Recent Shorts and Other Works." The first takes places on Feb. 12 and will feature Cohen introducing a handful of recent shorts and excerpts from works in progress.

- Remember Pancake Mountain, the beloved local, independent children's TV show that adults could actually stomach because of its awesome lineup of musical guests? Eddie Vedder, Ted Leo, The White Stripes, M.I.A. and the Flaming Lips are only a handful of the artists who appeared on the show. Fugazi's Ian MacKaye was on one episode and sang a song called "Vowel Movement." The theme was written by Fugazi's Brendan Canty. The show has been off the air for a couple of years and creator Scott Stuckey moved to L.A., but now he's ready to bring the show back. He needs some help though and has taken to Kickstarter to raise funds for the relaunch pilot, "Rufus Goes to Hollywood."
