“Punk the Capital” film: screening tour happening now

Punk The Capital: Building A Sound Movement [in Washington D.C.] 1976-1983 is “a documentary film and archival project,” and features “a new perspective on DC punk history and rare, unseen footage of bands such as the Bad Brains, Slickee Boys, and Minor Threat,” the film’s website describes. Sounds good to us.

The trailer is below. The tour info is below too. Of note is that some of the screenings feature the filmmaker and guests appearing for Q&As, particularly in Washington D.C. at the AFI Silver Theater.

Discord Records announced on Twitter that Minor Threat drummer Jeff Nelson will take part in Q&As on some Midwest dates too. We’re green with envy.

Another film about D.C. punk, Salad Days: 1980-1990: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC, is out on disc, by the way.
