Boredoms: Metro, Chicago

Everett True, Melody Maker, 10 July 1993

NEXT TO ME stands Corey (Touch & Go), mouth agape. Next to him is Ian MacKaye (Fugazi), bobble hat bobbing deliriously. A few kids scatter-dance, more from hope than reason. The main reaction is (i) sheer disbelief, (ii) awed laughter, (iii) sheer awe. Boredoms don't exactly hold back.

Total word count of piece: 536
