Screening and Q&A: Punk the Capital and DC's 1960s Garage Scene @ Cinema

From Garage to Punk: two renowned DC scenes meet: Screening + Q&A with Bob Berberich of DC's infamous 1960's band The Hangmen @ Eaton DC


We will host this screening/Q&A celebrating DC's legendary 1960s garage days, from the perspective of DC's punk/hardcore movement. Organized by the makers of Punk the Capital.

A screening of “Punk the Capital” (the road from 70s rock to 80s punk), and the short film “Scream Meets the Hangmen” (connecting DC’s garage and punk scenes), will be followed by a discussion with Bob Berberich of The Hangmen!

The Hangmen were locally beloved and became pioneers of the garage sound. They also were infamous for the chaos that they wrought at their shows. We'll be discussing the vibrant 1960s DC garage rock scene in DC and how it laid the groundwork for DC punk.

Stay tuned for the announcement of a concert organized in conjunction with the screening !
