Ann Arbor Natives Half Japanese run the Shakemore Festival in Baltimore

The Baltimore Post-Examiner tells us:

Half Japanese may be the most famous band you’ve never heard of. Founded in the mid-seventies by Ann Arbor, Michigan brothers Jad and David Fair, the art punk rockers have released some 35 singles and albums over the course of their careers, while influencing the likes of Kurt Cobain and Smashing Pumpkins. A family relocation brought the Fairs to placid Union Mills, Maryland more than two decades ago, but the serenity of Carroll County didn’t stop them from continuing to set the underground world of music on fire. This weekend, that fire will manifest itself with smoke from a pool-side grill and sixteen hours of music at the semi-private event, lovingly christened by David Fair as Shakemore.
