In celebration of the 50-year anniversary of the Woodstock music festival, the legendary rock/proto-punk band The Fugs will perform their farewell concert at the Byrdcliffe Barn on August 17, 2019. Formed in 1965 by poets Ed Sanders and Tuli Kupferberg, the Fugs are a wild mix of intellectual and raunchy counter-culturalism whose anthems include “Kill for Peace” and “CIA Man.” The current ensemble of the Fugs consists of Ed Sanders, leader and founder; Steve Taylor, vocals and guitars; Coby Batty, vocals and percussion; and Scott Petito, bass, keyboards, and other stringed instruments.
The Fugs will perform selections from their 50-plus years of songs and poems. In addition to Fugs classics will be their “Exorcism of the White House,” with the audience invited to chant along in the “Out, demons, out! Out, demons, out!” section. Read more…
