Megan Seling’s Story on FSU!
Stranger music writer Megan Seling has written a big deal story about a gang called FSU that’s been hovering below the radar screen in Seattle’s hardcore scene. As Megan reports, after 10 plus members of the gang were able to shut down a performance in West Seattle last week with threats of violence, the gang—once considered just a nuisance—is emerging as a central and troubling flash point for bookers, club owners, and hardcore fans.
The story isn’t in this week’s hard copy of the paper, so I wanted to alert people that it’s over on our homepage.
As Megan writes: “If a dozen young black men showed up to a local hiphop show threatening fans, performers, and promoters with violence, it’d easily make front-page news.” Props to Megan for filing this important story.
