Fugazi Show Spit-Happy Fan the Door

Legendary post-hardcore band Fugazi only charged five dollars for their shows, so you’d think that fans would return the favor by behaving properly at their concerts. However, since there always seemed to be a few troublemakers at their gigs, Fugazi would prepare envelopes with $5 bills in them to return to unruly fans who were ejected from the band’s shows.

In this particular case, as captured in the documentary ‘Instrument,’ singer-guitarist Ian MacKaye drags a fan upstage and asks him to apologize for spitting at him. When the incoherent fan doesn’t oblige, MacKaye personally escorts him off the stage and asks him to leave the show.
