Hoop dreams: Guy Picciotto of Fugazi and Rites of Spring makes NBA jumbotron cameo

We here at Slicing Up Eyeballs HQ are, admittedly, not fans of sport, but were nevertheless duly impressed to see the jumbotron operator at a Washington Wizards basketball game this past week throw the camera onto local fan Guy Picciotto, an icon of D.C.’s post-hardcore scene after his pivotal role in both Rites of Spring and Fugazi.

The image was captured by Washington Post music critic (and former Q and Not U guitarist) Chris Richards, who tweeted, “Koolest Wizards jumbotron screengrab of all time?” We’d agree.

Piciotto, of course, is no stranger to a basketball hoop, as you can see below.

    What could a Fugazi fan ever find wrong than a band member on the Jumbotron?

  2. Sounds like grounds for excommunication.

  3. Check out how baked the guy over his left shoulder is.

  4. I’m impressed the guy running the Jumbotron knew who Fuzagi and Guy Picciotto are.
