Fugazi To Tour East Coast
Punk-rock torchbearers Fugazi will tour the East Coast next month.
The three-week series of shows begins Dec. 2 in Providence, R.I. The
experimental and improvisational group likely will draw from a range of
material, such as the crowd favorite "Waiting Room" (RealAudio

"It's really important that everyone in the band be really well-rehearsed
on every single record and every single song," singer/guitarist Guy Picciotto

top of it."
Monday (Nov. 22) saw the release of 1986, an album of 13-year-old
recordings by Picciotto and drummer Brendan Canty's pre-Fugazi band, One
Earlier this year, Fugazi released Instrument Soundtrack, a companion
LP to "Instrument," a documentary about the band's first decade.
In keeping with the band's tradition, tickets for the tour are priced in
the $5 to $7 range.
