This Is Not a Fugazi Show (But It's The Next Best Thing)

Posted by on Wed, Jun 27, 2012 at 3:54 PM

See, I used to think I hated Fugazi because I associated them with the only fans I knew when I was a teenager: a couple aggro dudes who got in fights in my living room at parties. It's funny how the next generation of a band's following can multiply the bro-vibes exponentially? Luckily, I later realized the error of my ways and I came around, and this video screening/show Hannah Levin is hosting at the Sunset tonight looks amazing:

I'm fortunate enough to have an excellent DVD of Fugazi's landmark Seattle show at DV8 in 1999. The set list was neatly divided between 'Red Medicine,' 'End Hits,' and filled out by a generous survey of their back catalog. It's nearly 2 hours long and easily one of the most riveting live documents of a band I've ever seen. I wanted to share it with my fellow Fugazi fans while also raising a little scratch for Musicares. We'll show the DVD on the Sunset's big projection screen at 8, and follow it with live performances by two local bands who share an affection for the Dischord(ant), Blood Orange Paradise and Strong Killings. In the spirit of the band's original ticketing philosophy, cover is just $5, with all proceeds going to Musicares, the emergency health care network for uninsured artists.

The movie starts at 8 pm and stay for the sets by Blood Orange Paradise and precious Seattle treasures Strong Killings (guaranteed to be totally devoid of dude-bro vibes!)

I had a ticket to see this show but had to pass on it because I was moving and had too much packing and cleaning to do.
