Fugazi online archive
Fugazi's record label, Dischord announced earlier this year that they were working on a special website which would serve to chronicle the band's live history. The site has been in beta testing (for Dischord members) but Fugazi Live Series is finally ready to officially launch this Thursday, December 1st. Starting Thursday, you'll be able to watch a ton of live Fugazi shows, view original posters/flyers from the shows, and in some cases download live MP3s. Some of the shows will be free to view, others will be available to download for a small fee (either 5 dollars, or you can enjoy a sliding scale 'name your own price' option.) The band plans on eventually archiving 800 concerts, but they'll start with 130 and go from there. Visit the official Dischord site for more info, plus read the New York Times' interview with Ian McKaye and Guy Picciotto.
