Salad Days/with Live Punk Rock Show

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC (1980-90)” is a documentary film that examines the early DIY punk scene in the Nation’s Capital. It was a decade when seminal bands like Bad BrainsMinor ThreatGovernment IssueScreamVoidFaithRites of SpringMarginal ManFugazi, and others released their own records and booked their own shows—without major record label constraints or mainstream media scrutiny. Contextually, it was a cultural watershed that predated the alternative music explosion of the 1990s (and the industry’s subsequent implosion). Thirty years later, DC’s original DIY punk spirit serves as a reminder of the hopefulness of youth, the power of community and the strength of conviction. 

To get you in the groove of the movie, before the film there will be a damaging short set from local punks Headcold. There will also be books set up in the lobby from local diy heroine Mary Chamberlin and the Tree of Knowledge. These books and zines represent punk rock culture, and will be on display to look at, and for purchase.
