      Salad Days: A Decade Of Punk In Washington, DC (1980-90)

        “Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC (1980-90)” examines the early DIY punk scene in the Nation’s Capital.

        It was a decade when seminal bands like Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Government Issue, Scream, Void, Faith, Rites of Spring, Marginal Man, Fugazi, 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. Bonus Materials, Live performances by Fugazi, Government Issue, Gray Matter, Marginal Man, Beefeater, Embrace, Holy Rollers and Soulside Additional interviews with Henry Rollins, Ian MacKaye, Kevin Seconds, Brian Baker and many others

        ”Fascinating insight into the influential Washington DC hardcore punk scene.” Teamrock

        ”Salad Days looks to be making a late bid to be the year’s best music doc” The Guardian

        ”...Salad Days not only acts as a musical primer but as a monument to a moment: when punk was both a way to find kinship with like-minded oddballs and a tool for fighting issues like racism and economic disparity.” Rolling Stone

        ”Provides a solid, borderline exhaustive survey of the Washington, D.C., hardcore punk scene of the 1980s -- possibly the nation’s most influential such milieu.”Variety
