It is Ian, I just watched a video of him speaking at the LIBRARY OF CONGRESS and he briefly discusses the picture as he is showing the audience the FUGAZI "live shows" archive on the DISCHORD site... Good Stuff!

I was wondering the same thing? Is that IAN? I know Alec actually grew long hair around this time but I never knew Ian had hair this long. Awesome! I have seen some pics around the (pre)-repeater era when his hair was a little longer but not LONG. I want to see more pictures.

The time is September 26, 1987; the place is St. Stephen's Church, where Ian admittedly was baptized 25 years prior. This is the second live performance of the band, and we find them in a relaxed, talkative mood for the occasion. The Intro actually features the groundwork of a song that apparently (yet unfortunately) never left the drawing board. It gets things going right off the bat. Formal introductions follow, and the band then launches into the life-celebrating song Turn Off Your Guns and solid renditions of Song #1, In Defense of Humans and Furniture. Both Ian and Joe heckle the audience for being (too) quiet during Interlude 3; Ian then invites Joe to “put a move on buddy” which is followed by the familiar bass groove introducing Waiting Room. Ian breaks a string during Merchandise (dedicated for the occasion to “all the t-shirts, stickers and to Tomas Squip, the man who makes them all”) but does not break his stride as he finishes the song unflustered while Brendan and Joe continue to lay down the rhythm. As Ian replaces the broken string, he urges Brendan and Joe to play what Ian refers to as Joe #2, a provisional jam that eventually would evolve into the song And The Same, released on the Margin Walker EP in 1989; Ian fixes his guitar just in time to join in during the last part of the jam. The Word, “a song about change” makes for an energetic set and show closer. As to the mix, I find the drums especially to be clear and quite crisp, everything else a bit less so.

Darkness at Noon was good this evening. also people brought the lyric sheets from the wilson center show, so the songs were not new anymore

Wow! Never saw those pics before. Awesome rug Ian had going on! I wonder what he thinks about that looking back? Myself, as a former "grower of long hair" in my late teens, and now a 40 something guy keeping my balding head short, I know I look back at my long locks with fond appreciation.

Wait. Is that Ian? With hair?
