Fugazi on the Web

Fugazi on the Web

DC band Fugazi (founded 1987) has been on “permanent hiatus” since 2003, but their concerts are going global. Discord Records is putting digitizing audio tapes of 800 live Fugazi shows on its Web site. There already were 130 shows up there in the Beta version, and the site went public today as Fugazi Live Series.

The band is known for insisting on low prices and trusting its fans, and the archive is in keeping with that DIY, all-ages-access philosophy. It’s pay what you can/pay what you like, with each recording at a suggested price of $5 per show and a sliding scale of $1 to $100.
