Dance of Days: A Visual History of Punk in DC
Affinity Lab
2451 18th Street, NW
Washington, DC

The history of D.C. punk and hardcore is littered with legendary bands that most music fans have heard of — the Bad Brains, Minor Threat — but broke up in the early ’80s, or seminal acts that formed in the late ’80s or early ’90s but haven’t played together in years (Fugazi, Bikini Kill). Get a multimedia history lesson — or a walk down memory lane — tonight at the Afinity Labs, where Marc Andersen, the author of the scene biography “Dance of Days: Two Decades of Punk in the Nation’s Capital,” will be hosting a video presentation with 70 minutes of classic concert footage and offering commentary about important musical acts from Rites of Spring to the National of Ulysses.

Throw in DJs from Smash and Crooked Beat spinning D.C. bands and free light refreshments and you’ve got one heck of an evening. As D.C. concert-goers might expect, this is a benefit, raising money for We Are Family, a charity that provides groceries, transportation and other assistance to low-income seniors. A $8 donation is suggested.
