I saw Fugazi live in Little Rock at the Rivermarket pavilion ten years ago or so with my good friend MC Spookytooth. I literally heard it on the radio on the way home from work that Fugazi was playing a show a couple of hours later and immediately called Spooky. We met up shortly thereafter and reveled in the mosh pit and slam dancing*, which was made even better by Ian McKaye chastising the unruly crowd for acting like brainless, violent idiots. How often do you get to see a hyper-literate, extraordinarily talented bandleader call out his core constituency for engaging in moronic behavior and have the targets of his derision love him even more for it? A weird relationship, certainly. Sufficed to say, the show was fantastic.
