Tonight: Dance of Days @ Affinity Labs

The history of DC punk and hardcore is littered with legendary bands that most music fans have heard of — the Bad Brains, Minor Threat — but broke up in the early ’80s, or seminal acts that formed in the late ’80s or early ’90s but haven’t played together in years (Fugazi, Bikini Kill). Get a multimedia history lesson — or a walk down memory lane — tonight at Affinity Lab, where Marc Andersen, the author of the scene biography Dance of Days: Two Decades of Punk in the Nation’s Capital,will be hosting a video presentation with 70 minutes of classic concert footage and offering commentary about important musical acts from Rites of Spring to the Nation of Ulysses.

Proceeds go to local charity We Are Family, who provides groceries, transportation and other assistance to low-income seniors. A $8 donation is suggested.
