what a long strange trip it's been

I've never been a huge Fugazi fan, and honestly haven't really paid that much attention to the band's career, but I just realized that the folks behind the wall of character have been selling live recordings for several months.

(You did recognize that Grateful Dead reference in the title of this post, right? Just checking.)

But the comparison between Fugazi and the Grateful Dead pretty much ends at there being copious live documentation available to fans. Because Fugazi is actually selling live recordings rather than just allowing shows to be recorded for free, like the Grateful Dead did. All of a sudden, those $5 shows seem a little more expensive, right?
