Previously handpicked by the band and released in 2005 as part of the second batch of the original live series on CD (volume 27), this recording documents the second and last time Fugazi played at Tipitina’s (for some more background related to this venue, see my entry for the 1996 show) as well as in New Orleans for that matter.

Presented here are 23 live tracks. Most of these are taken off of the October 2001 album The Argument (7) and Furniture EP (2), while most of the other albums add a fairly equal yet limited number of songs to the set list: End Hits (3), Red Medicine (3), Steady Diet of Nothing (2), Repeater (3), Margin Walker EP (2) and 7 Songs debut EP (1). Not a single song is taken off of In on the Kill Taker or the 3 Songs seven-inch.

Overall a strong performance and personal favorites here include Nightshop (prolonged drum intro), Closed Captioned, Life and Limb and most definitely Shut The Door (main set closer). Actually, the whole encore that ensues is pretty much impeccable. The Argument is the absolute pinnacle and a composed yet soulful take on Long Division closes out the evening.

Note that this recording features the only live rendering of Shut the Door on the US leg of the 2002 tour (caveat: at the time of writing, the Holyoke, Massachusetts show is not yet available for download) as well as the first out of only four live renderings of both Latin Roots and Lockdown in 2002, and the first out of only five live performances of Target in that same year.

Worth mentioning as well are some interesting introductory remarks going into Lockdown (“once you build a prison you have to find people to put in it” rap) , Cashout (“human beings are physical entities“ rap) or The Argument (“what the fuck is going on“ and “fundamentalism that could also be called patriotism, fundamentalism that is also called capitalism” rap).

Wrapped up and delivered in impeccable sound quality (Guy’s vocals rarely sounded more suave), this right here is a top-notch recording of a stellar gig. Definitely a highlight of the 2002 tour in my book.

And so it seems I was mistaken! The previous concert at Tipitina's dates from April 5, 1996. You might want to check that one out as well :-)

I remember I very much enjoyed the previous Fugazi live recording @ Tipitina's, which dates from 1994 if I am not mistaken.
Even though In On The Killtaker is one of my favorite Fugazi albums and not a single one of its songs is included in the set list that is featured right here, Fugazi definitely spoiled the good people of New Orleans once again. This show is absolutely stellar, with a top-notch recording to back it up.
Musical highlights are plenty and include Latin Roots, Closed Captioned, Shut The Door, The Argument, Long Division and Life And Limb. Viva Viva Viva!!!

Thank you guys for releasing this. My band Amerigo opened the show and it was an amazing night for all ten of us. We will never forget that experience. This is a quality documentation of the night. I will check and see if we have any video and photos of the night that we can send over to further the documentation.
