"It’s All True," an "opera-in-suspension based on the complete live archives of iconic underground band Fugazi,” by the Brooklyn-based performance group Object Collection, is coming to Stateside at the Paramount May 18 to 20.
It’s a littler hard to describe so let’s go to the press release:
"Grounded upon the DC post-hardcore outfit’s 1987-2002 Live Archive series, the work uses only the incidental music, text and sounds, none of Fugazi’s actual songs. An obsessive leap into 1500 hours of gig detritus – random feedback, aimless drum noodling, pre-show activist speeches, audience hecklers, police breaking up gigs – is the foundation of an ear-body-and-mind-flossing 100 minutes for four voices/performers, four electric guitars/basses and two drummers.”
