Fugazi to Create Website With Every Show They've Ever Played

Leave it to Fugazi to do something this awesome. They're posting every single concert they ever played to a soon-to-be-unveiled website.

In an interview with Approaching Oblivion (via SPIN), frontman Ian MacKaye revealed that the process of preparing "a database of thousands of live recordings we have" is well underway. Having transferred the video from old-school cassettes and DAT, he goes on to say, "I'm editing and fixing things up, we've been working on this project for 2 years now."

The seminal (they're always described as seminal) Washington, D.C., punk band was known for their live act. Here they are performing two of their more well-known songs, "Waiting Room" and "Repeater," at Dupont Circle in 1989.
