It’s All True is an opera-in-suspension based on the complete live archives of iconic underground band Fugazi. 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 1,500 hours of gig detritus – random feedback, aimless drum noodling, pre-show activist speeches, audience hecklers, police breaking up gigs – forms the foundation of an ear-body-and-mind-flossing 100 minutes for four voices/performers, four electric guitars/basses, and two drummers. It’s All True is overloaded, maddening, mundane, properly funny, and a radical incitement to action.
