Joe Lally (born December 3, 1963 in Silver Spring, Maryland) is a bass guitar player with Fugazi. He has also contributed occasional lyrics and vocals to Fugazi songs. In early 2002, Lally joined ex-Frodus members Shelby Cinca and Jason Hamacher on a project originally called The Black Sea, which would change its name to Decahedron and release an EP and an album before Lally left the band. He has also worked with John Frusciante and Josh Klinghoffer as the group Ataxia.
In 2006, Mr. Lally was playing solo shows on bass with slight laptop accompaniment in various college towns. The songs appear to be originals and have a socio-political bend. Lally's first solo album, There to Here, was released in the fall of 2006. It features Jerry Busher, Ian MacKaye, Amy Farina, Guy Picciotto, and many others of the DC music scene.
In 2007, he toured the U.S. with the Philadelphia band Capillary Action and Europe and Japan with the Italian band Zu. His second solo album, Nothing Is Underrated, was released in November 2007.
