I wrote a short article about the song "Polish" that might be of interest: https://alexmitrani.github.io/Repeatr/articles/polish%20with%20a%20small%20p.html

I was at this show at the UConn Student Union Ballroom. It was my first experience in a mosh pit. When someone fell, they were picked back up. I spent most of my time near the front of the stage, stage left.

I believe i was in attendance at this show. Maybe at a clubhouse on campus. Can anybody confirm or deny?

My first Fugazi show: almost two years ( ! ) after buying "Margin Walker" on cassette at Record Express in West Hartford Center and finally getting hip to what my more "avant-garde" friends had discovered earlier. As usual. Memories of the show: too many people crammed in a hot, dark, low-ceilinged student center; Guy and Ian seeming to get pissy with each other (as well as with the audience) ; going to sleep that night with my ears still profoundly ringing.

This can be considered a bit of a turbulent show. For one, the stage is at risk of literally collapsing a number of times and even the ever reticent Joe steps in to talk some sense into the people that keep bumping into it. Also, listen closely as both Guy and Ian confront the audience repeatedly in an effort to manage things.
Also, this particular performance is somewhat rough, since there are several mistakes dotted around and the band seems particularly "disturbed" at times by the many mishappenings that mark the evening. Case in point, Reclamation surprisingly dwindles and is simply cut short by the band in the end.
The sound quality of this recording is not the best, since some of the (essential) guitarplay is hard to discern at times. Plus, note that part is missing of both Suggestion and Margin Walker.
Nevertheless, this is a show I enjoyed listening to, and will return to for several reasons. First and foremost, this recording features the song première of Polish, a rare performance I have been eagerly anticipating. And this version doesn't disappoint and is basically spot-on, from the tricky timing, to the successive tempo and rhythmic shifts that make up the backbone of this tremendous song (note that one of the band members refers to the song as "Steady Diet" right before going into it, which makes me wonder if they actually intended to play Polish). Other than that, I enjoyed the overall feel of the set list (note that Turnover is featured unusually late this time around) and had a blast listening to Guy going off and spitting out his lyrics and related obscenities during Two Beats Off and Sieve-Fisted Find.
So yes, I might suggest you grab this one, and enjoy.
