What people are saying…
“A truly compelling narrative . . . a powerful piece of cultural reporting.”
“For anyone interested in the power of independent music, this is an overdue insight into a vibrant, homegrown scene.”
“A best buy for those seeking to educate themselves on the legacy created by Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Fugazi, Bratmobile, and on and on.”
Washington, DC’s creative, politically insurgent punk scene is studied for the first time by local activist Mark Andersen and arts writer Mark Jenkins. The nation’s capital gave birth to the most influential punk underground of the ’80s and ’90s. Dance of Days recounts the rise of trailblazing artists such as Bad Brains, Henry Rollins, Minor Threat, Rites of Spring, Fugazi, and Bikini Kill, while examining the roots of PMA, straight edge, Dischord Records, Revolution Summer, Positive Force, and Riot Grrrl. This book provides a window on the hidden history of a grassroots rock revolution that burst into the mainstream in the early ’90s following the success of Nirvana and its groundbreaking album, Nevermind.
