Guy Picciotto was a singer and guitarist with Fugazi, the subject of Photographer Glen E. Friedman’s Keep Your Eyes Open. Fugazi is a band that evolved from Washington, DC’s, hardcore punk scene of the late 1970s and early 1980s. It booked its own tours and performed in unconventional venues in order to maintain ticket prices that averaged just five dollars, a practice that opened many venues to other touring artists.  In Keep Your Eyes Open (Akashic Books), Friedman documents Fugazi’s members onstage and off in almost 200 color and black-and-white images captured between 1986 and the band’s last US concert in 2002
