When punk rock exploded in D.C. in the late 1970s, it was a mighty convergence of powerful music, intergenerational friendships, and clear minds. PUNK THE CAPITAL captures that transformative period, situating DC punk and DC harDCore within the larger narratives of rock ‘n’ roll.
Featuring a recently unearthed Super-8 film of bands like Bad Brains and interviews with legends like Henry Rollins and Ian MacKaye, PUNK THE CAPITAL explores why the sounds and ideas from this influential music scene continue to inspire around the world.
