I was 18 and this was my first real show. Hadn’t heard them before. The commons was a big cafeteria with a green carpet and a brick patio all around. Someone in the band complained that there was plenty of room for more people, as there were perhaps hundreds outside, but apparently the fire code was not to be broken. At one point during the show I fell in the mosh pit, and a kid picked me up. I thanked him profusely because it was scary and I didn’t know that’s just what people did! I teach high school English and I look for chances to include lyrics. Fugazi has made it into a class more than once.

This was a great show. Second or third Fugazi show for me. Went with a bunch of friends (a few of whom have already posted here!) and it was close to home. Three things that stood out were: 1. How small the venue was. That being a great thing, by the way. I felt like I was on stage at times. 2nd: Already mentioned above was the request for Polish. It was so cool and spontaneous. The funny part it that I travelled down to RI the next night to see the band at Lupos. I was tempted to request Polish since Ian said that from now on if anyone requested it they'd get their admission fee returned. Of I course I knew this would be 100% douche-baggery so I bit my toung. 3rd: after the show we aware hanging out outside the building and saw Guy frantically bangining on the windows trying to get someone to let him back in. It was sort of funny, but now I almost feel like a jerk for admitting that. Also, I'm not completely sure that it wasn't before the show. Hmm... If this review doesn't convince you to spend 5 bucks, I don't know what will.

Listening to the first couple of songs, I have to admit that the sound quality seemed a bit off and didn't really do that much for me.
Still, this recording grew on me as I continued to listen (maybe because the sound slightly improves as the mix is being settled) and having made it twenty songs into the set list, I considered it a definite keeper, because of several solid song renditions and, more importantly, because of this:
1) During Encore 1, someone puts in a request for the song Polish (taken from Steady Diet Of Nothing) and although the band does not play it on this particular occasion, the person putting in the request is handed 5 dollars by the band just for requesting this song. I take this interaction to heart, since I love that particular song and am still waiting for its first live recording to be released. Even though both Ian and Guy mentioned in the past that the song only has been played live on a handful of occasions since the band never managed to figure out exactly how to pull it off live, I am eager to hear an attempt. So Gentlemen, Please Make Such A Recording Available! For the time being, I will cherish the verbal reference featured here :)
2) This recording also includes the première of Fell, Destroyed (instrumental version), a song featured on the album Red Medicine, released in 1995
Much obliged for another great experience in the Live Series,

This was my first Fugazi show. I remember some kid in the crowd kept requesting "Stepping Stone" until Ian kindly replied; "Sir, this band doesn't play that song". Glad I got to see them with the biggest FVGASI fan I know, Mr. Vince LaVecchia.

Worked at WRUV and helped with the show. I tried to feign the cool indifference of every college radio DJ but my voice was all trembling and cracking when I walked Guy to the basement radio station. I clearly remember the chills I got when they began with Reclamation's wall of guitar.

Yeah, Vin.

This was my first Fugazi show. I remember tons of kids hanging outside plastered to the windows, waiting to get in. I felt lucky.

WRUV presents... such a good show. Not as wild as the Pigface show a few weeks later, but a nice break to the winter monotony.
