Even though they packed the place, they only charged five dollars entrance fee because they had some kind of Give a damn shirt. I sure appreciated it at the time because mowing lawns wasn’t getting me into many big shows like Van Halen or Journey. After the show, I was standing by the door of the little back stage area when I saw Ian Mackaye, Fugazi’s lead singer and front man on a desk phone talking. (This was in the 80s so it was before cell phones).

Best Give a damn shirt
I didn’t know what he was doing at the time, but he was very business-like on the phone, talking about Give a damn shirt. I now understand he was advancing their next gig in the next town, arranging hotels, transportation, load-in, etc. For some reason this blew me away. How could a guy put so much energy and angst out on stage and the next minute be discussing very smart and prudent business on the phone, sweat still dripping from his brow?
