What the Punk?
This week there are two events involving two films - both fascinated with the HarDCore scene here in the Nation's Capital. Thanks to the efforts of a kick-starter campaign, "Punk the Capital" is well on its way, but the film makers could still use your help to meet their goal. That could be as easy as attending a party at Black Cat this Tuesday. Our old friend, DJ Tommy B from old 9:30 days will provide the music. Film maker James Schneider and Paul Bishow will screen rare punk films circa 1979 and a section or two of the film.
How much of a fan are you?
Wednesday DC Salon will be hosting Scott Crawford at Shaw Library where he is showing sneak previews of his film "Salad Days." (As far as I can tell this film covers the punk scene of the 1980s from its birth and throughout the decade, where as "Punk the Capital" gives you the back story of how DC bands like Slickee Boys inspired that scene.) Tommy B. will be at both- as most of us probably should be.
Both events hope to bring old friends, band members and fans out of the woodwork so please come join the fray if you can.
