Fugazi archive of live shows launching in December

Record label Dischord are launching The Fugazi Live Series on 1 December, a site archiving Fugazi's live shows, plus flyers, photos and other ephemera. The archive will be behind a paywall, at either $5 a pop, or through an 'all access' fee.

In total the band played around 1000 shows in all fifty states in the US, and Europe, Japan, South America and Australia, around 800 of which were recorded by sound engineers. When the site launches there will be 130 shows available to download, with more to be added in the coming months. More info here. [Hat tip: Pitchfork]
