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

If you love the movie, check out Director Scott Crawford’s book Spoke: Images and Stories from the 1980s Washington DC Punk Scene, an oral and photographic history of the Washington, DC Punk Rock scene. Crawford has also been named the Director of crowdfunded documentary Boy Howdy! The Story of Creem: America’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll Magazine, which will be made if funds reach $100,000.
