Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington DC


A music doc exploring the days of the early DIY punk scene in the American capital.

Directed and written by music journalist, musician and graphic designer Scott Crawford, 'Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC' takes a look at the decade between 1980 and 1990 when bands including Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Government Issue, Scream, Void, Faith, Rites of Spring, Marginal Man, Fugazi and others were releasing their own records and booking their own shows.

With constraints from neither major record labels nor from mainstream media scrutiny, the era spawned a unique DIY punk spirit that 30 years later still functions as a reminder of the power of community, the strength of conviction and the hopelessness of youth.
