Is Fugazi ever going to tour again?????

Posted by treece | November 16, 2007 4:26 PM

No.

I seriously doubt Fugazi will never tour again... although... I've seen them so many times, I can't imagine a reunion being very good.

Posted by rocked the shit | November 16, 2007 5:02 PM

Wait, why is he speaking? Is Dischord releasing a book?

Oops, nix my last post:

If they reunited they'd do it not just for some half-assed reunion tour but to make new music. There's no reason why, after a little time playing together again, their live shows wouldn't be better than ever. And, hopefully, with markedly fewer assholes in the audience.

That said, it does seem Fugazi is over, according to Guy:

Small Presses kill trees, but my link doesn't! Hit it. Feel righteous. Live green, vote blue, even if they put up LBJ.

ian svenonius is a complete tool.

death and taxes magazine has a really interesting interview with joe lally about fugazi and also his collaboration with john frusciante and josh klinghoffer.
