Back by popular demand, MOCAD is pleased to re-screen the documentary 'Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC (1980-90)' as part of a new film series presented by MCOAD and Café 78.

'Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC (1980-90)' is a documentary film that examines the early DIY punk scene in our nation's capital. It was a decade when seminal bands like Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Government Issue, Scream, Void, Rites of Spring, 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.
