GS, did you see it? I'd be interested in your thoughts. I thought it was ok, fun for the nostalgia element and in some cases to remind me of performers I haven't thought about for a while. But I found the whole "reflecting on the meaning of it" and some of the occasional self-importance a bit tiresome.
I've heard/read a lot of Henry Rollins interviews, commentary over the years, but no as much of Ian MacKaye. I thought Ian MacKaye came across pretty cool (as did, unsurprisingly, HR).
Apropos of this weekend, CBGB RIP.
