Punk the Capital; Building a Sound Movement

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Washington, D.C.? If your answer is anything but Ian MacKaye, then this film has a thing or two to teach you. Punk the Capital; Building a Sound Movement explores the late '70s/early '80s punk movement of sounds and ideas that inspired an incalculable number musicians. Relive the scene with recently unearthed Super-8 films of hardcore pioneers Minor Threat and Bad Brains. (I also would have accepted “Guy Picciotto” or “Abe Lincoln.”). For more info, read CP's interview with Minor Threat/Dischord Records' Jeff Nelson from 2019.
