Just A Minor Threat (Or a Threat to Minors?)

Ian Mackaye (from Fugazi, The Evens, Minor Threat, Embrace and a million other awesome independent music-related projects, including Dischord Records) recently spoke out about a proposed ban on All-Ages access to events in the Washington, DC area.

I'm not sure what the original issue was that prompted this to occur, but I'll update this story with a link if and when I find out.

I wanted to post this, however, because from my perspective, it's just refreshing to see someone sticking to their guns and standing up for what they believe in, even 25+ years on. And all causes should be so lucky as to have a spokesperson as eloquent and thoughtful as Ian Mackaye.

Check it out, you can watch it HERE.
