OCT.19: JAMES SCHNEIDER’s PUNK THE CAPITAL
Long-time OC ally James June Schneider (1,2,3 Whiteout) remains an invaluable underground source, and bi-national non-fiction master, on the Washington watch. With essential help from small-gauge guru Paul Bishow, James has finally pulled together their long-awaited doc about the seminal years when punk broke in DC, with powerful new sounds and radical attitudes, thanks to bands like Minor Threat, Bad Brains, and the Void (Chris Stover in person). Tonight James is here in the flesh with the West Coast’s first look at how the DC scene gained momentum, and an affirmative, generous, and creative community emerged. An artists’ co-op called Madam’s Organ was a space of possibility, like punk itself, where generations and musical genres mixed, eventually becoming the launch-pad for Washington’s harDCore movement. Newly discovered footage and in-depth personal accounts afford fresh perspectives on how the impact of that music and those ideas eventually grew to resonate world-wide. *$8
