A couple of days after already added ‘American Hardcore’ – The History Of American Punk Rock 1980 – 1986′ to its list of programs, THE PIT VOD platform presents now…

‘Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC (1980-90)’. An acclaimed documentary chronicling the rise of punk rock in Washington, DC. Bands like Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Government Issue, Scream, Void, Rites Of Spring, Fugazi, and others released their own records and booked their own shows, without record label constraints or mainstream media scrutiny. 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.

The full documentary is available right now on the platform with a 7-days FREE trial.
