Fugazi is reuniting! At least, that’s according to an obviously fake Facebook event that’s been circulating recently.
More than 1,000 people have RSVP’d to allegedly see the local post-hardcore legends play their first gig in 20 years “for their fav [sic] corporate sponsor Scion and at their fav [sic] flip-phone provider and concert venue club nokia [sic]” in Los Angeles. Arts Desk would fact check this to confirm it is indeed a hoax, but honestly, we (and, presumably Ian MacKaye and Dischord Records) were too busy laughing at the comments.
Look, Fugazi reunion jokes are fairly tried and true by this point, but we were particularly tickled by the reaction to this one, which range from pretty hilarious zingers to earnest excitement about the blatantly fake show:
Oh, and tickets for the “show” range from $69-$420. “Legendary metal band Kratos” will open. Heh.
