Nigh on 11 years after their first stopover in Pomona, CA at the Elks Lodge, Fugazi would play the city a second and final time just before concluding their 1999 West Coast tour with a three night jaunt at the Palace in Los Angeles.

As is the case for most if not the entire West Coast string of shows, the band delivers another tight show, a well-oiled machine busting out song after song, honed by ample and relentless touring and practice.

Footage of this show is available (mostly black & white ; part of Bed For The Scraping is missing) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9Jl4oMnFMA) and actually points out that the Arpeggiator instrumental opened the set, with Cassavetes (which is the incomplete opener of the audio file offered by Dischord) only following suit.

There are 22 songs total here, taken off of the Furniture EP (1), End Hits (7), Red Medicine (4), Kill Taker (3), Steady Diet (1), Repeater (3), Margin Walker (1) and 7 Songs (2) respectively.

This includes rarities Greed (5 times played in 1999 and just once this leg of the tour), Two Beats Off (8 renderings in 1999 ; Guy ad-libs a couple of lines and appears to tag another song but I can’t put my finger on it: “I was living, I was walking by numbers…”) or Give Me The Cure featuring a slightly lengthier intro (9), as well as rareish versions of Bad Mouth (11 plays in 1999), Walken’s Syndrome (12), or Forensic Scene (13).

The sound quality is arguably quite good overall, yet it is worth mentioning that the instrumentation drowns out Ian’s vocals in the beginning and it takes a bit of time for the mix to finally settle (Walken’s Syndrome). Even after that, there are the occasional sonic discrepancies (slight crunches) but nothing really disruptive.

I particularly enjoyed the Recap Modotti > Promises > Give Me The Cure streak, as well as the collected rendering of Long Division featuring a bit of an instrumental outro to close out the set (the classic combination with Blueprint is served in reversed order here).

I'm pretty sure Jerry Busher played drums on a few of these songs. This was the last time I ever saw Fugazi...sob.
