Ian MacKaye just turned fifty. As someone who grew up listening to Minor Threat and Fugazi that seems absurd to me. I decided I wanted to do a drawing relating to him in some way today. While perusing the internet for ideas I came across this article about MacKaye’s stage banter at a certain show. He’s been known to give aggressive audience members a hard time and this was no different.
To two more aggressive audience members: “I saw you two guys earlier at the consumer truck and you were eating your ice cream like little boys and I thought, ‘Those guys aren’t so tough. They’re eating ice cream, what a bunch of swell guys! I saw you eating ice cream pal! You’re bad now but you were eating an ice cream cone and I saw you. That’s the shit you can’t hide! Ice cream eating motherfucker. That’s what you are.”
