WORLD PREMIERE As a teenager in the 1980s, Scott Crawford began a fanzine documenting the explosion of a distinctive brand of hardcore punk music in Washington, DC, exemplified by bands like Minor Threat, Bad Brains and Fugazi. Drawing from his own immersion in that world, and featuring a who’s who of musicians, label owners, photographers and writers, Salad Days explores the development and evolution of the DC punk scene, and how it shaped independent music and popular culture in the decade that followed.
