Writer/director Scott Crawford and director of photography Jim Saah are roughly halfway through production for Salad Days: The DC Punk Revolution, a documentary on the 1980s Washington, DC punk scene expected out in 2013. Among those to be featured in the film are Ian Mackaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi, The Evens) Henry Rollins (Black Flag) and Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Scream.) Here’s the film’s description, from the official Facebook page:
“‘Salad Days: The HarDCore Punk Revolution’ will be the most comprehensive, honest and insightful look at the DC punk scene from the early 1980s to the decade’s end. The film will include exclusive archival photographs, concert footage and interviews with dozens of bands, artists, label owners, zine publishers and others who helped mold and nurture DC’s underground community during this inspired decade of music.”
