I was at this show. Really wish someone had a recording. It was monumental for me. I was 15. Lied to my Mom and ditched work to go. Was a huge Minor Threat and Embrace fan and had only recently discovered Fugazi. I was so excited to see them. When they started to play my friends and I went nuts. I was a very small 15 year-old boy. Someone threw me up in the air and I landed on the stage. It was during the song Suggestion. Music slowed almost to a grinding halt when Ian Mackaye looked me directly in the eye and said (I'll never forget) "What the fuck is wrong with you? This song is about rape and you're jumping around like a fucking animal. This song could be about your Mother, your sister, or any of the countless other women that are raped every day." At the time, I was a straight edge pacifist kid in a school full of cowboys and gangsters in a very red state. Mackaye was my hero and wanting to maintain my punk rock composure I fought hard to hold the tears back. I was devestated but the experience changed me significantly and helped to shape the honest, caring, socially responsible person I have attempted to become in the 25 years or so since this show. I attended several fugazi shows after that and have often thought of writing the band or approaching them after a show to share this, but I guess I was intimidated and I just figured among the many shows they've played there would be no way any of them could possibly remember this one. Anyways, I don't want to wax too poetic but considering what I gained from this one show at a crappy burned out house venue in one of Phoenix's worst neighborhoods at the time... Well, I just can't be too grateful for that.
