Punk The Capital (5/14- 5/27)

Thursday, May 27 2021
$12

 

When punk rock erupted in Washington DC, it was a mighty convergence of powerful music, friendships, and clear minds. This film is the first to explore the incredible challenges that this subculture faced when it took root in the Nation’s Capital in the late 1970’s. Punk the Capital situates DC punk within the larger narratives of rock n’ roll, working as a powerful multi-layered story for both fans and non-fans of punk rock. Featuring musicians such as Bad Brains, Henry Rollins, and Ian MacKaye, this film dives deep into the ideas and sounds from this transformative music scene which continues to be influential culturally and politically around the world.

MUSIC: Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Slickee Boys, Void, Faith, Rites of Spring, Half Japanese, Black Market Baby, Tru Fax, SOA, The Enzymes, and the Insaniacs.

The Apohadion Theater and SPACE are pleased to co-present Punk the Capital as part of an ongoing series of virtual film screenings in 2021.

Please see our updated pandemic policy for fall 2021. Indoor events at 538 Congress Street start in October!
