I wandered over to see Fugazi Monday night at Sloss Furnaces. Not a bad show at all. One thing caught my ear, though. Everytime Mr. MacKaye stopped the music to lecture some kid about being considerate to the people around him or to lambast his detractors, there was wild cheering from the crowd. It occurred to me that a lot of people were there to be scolded. I guess if I called it a gimmick, I'd get scolded too.
By the way - Fugazi is entirely correct to gripe about Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster is terrible. It's worth avoiding them if possible.
