Hard Art: DC 1979 – Photos from the early days of D.C. hardcore

Lucian Perkins’ photo book Hard Art: DC 1979 documents four early punk and hardcore shows in Washington DC in 1979.

In 1979, a soon-to-erupt punk scene took hold in Washington, DC, with trailblazer bands  like the Bad Brains, Trenchmouth, Teen Idles, the Untouchables, and the Slickee Boys, among others. Lucian Perkins, later a Pulitzer Prize–winning photojournalist for The Washington Post, was then an intern who photographed several pivotal and electrifying shows. His now-iconic photos are complemented by punk rock musicians Alec MacKaye’s narrative and Henry Rollins’ essay.
