Note that this is the first show Fugazi played in almost three months, following the string of shows in Brazil.
Even though Ian mentions the band had been practising daily for weeks on end prior to this particular concert, it seems to me the performance is not that tight, the timing being somewhat off on a number of occasions.
Still, this might have a lot to do with the fact that this show is one big Red Medicine try-out. No less than 9 songs from the album that was to be released a couple of months later, are featured live here, some for the very first time (Downed City instrumental première; Do You Like Me première; Bed For The Scraping première; Latest Disgrace première; Birthday Pony; By You; Forensic Scene première; Target; and Back to Base première). It is great listening to these early live versions, as the band is still fine-tuning both the melodies and lyrics.
Other than that, the opening remarks include a very gripping testimony by a father having lost his son due to an act of senseless violence; even though I am from Europe, Belgium myself, where guns are not that much of an issue, I find it a very convincing plea against the widespread ownership and use of firearms (even though this in itself of course will only be an outlet to other deeply rooted issues actually causing outburst of senseless violence).
So there you go, another recording definitely worth noting. ..
