Ian MacKaye is coming to the Brooks. I'm pretty sure my Minor Threat t-shirt is still in a box somewhere at my mom's house.

I enjoyed it. I am much more interested in his music than his personal beliefs, but he was much less didactic than I expected. He's a great speaker and even when I didn't agree with everything he said, it was engaging. The guy has made some incredible music over the years and he's obviously very smart. I definitely couldn't speak intelligently for 90 minutes about high school teachers, 9/11 and Al Jourgensen.

Eddy Current Suppression Ring got a nice plug, including a mention that seeing ECSR in Philadelphia recently was the first time he had traveled out of town to see a show since 1981. Cool!

One girl asked him why he decided to get out of music, even though he hasn't, and he was extremely nice about it. I half-expected him to berate the entire room for the question, but he didn't. He seemed like a cool guy.

I'm glad I went.

The earlier Ian Mackeye thread was poking fun of that preconception. Met him once at the behest of someone that knew him well and he couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating less than a minute after getting offstage after a Fugazi gig.

from Swans bit in NY Times... a refreshingly negative approach to the hardcore scene from Michael Gira-

And though he credited some West Coast punk, he couldn't relate to the hardcore scene in New York at all. Hardcore, he said, was a "namby-pamby" genre. "It was just a way for people to belong," he said. "And that's the last thing I think people should do."
