VIRTUAL Downtown Walking Tour of the D.C. Punk Underground

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library - Central Library

VIRTUAL Downtown Walking Tour of the D.C. Punk Underground

Saturday, Oct. 17, 2015, 2 p.m.

Due to high demand, the walking tour has been moved indoors to Washintoniana, room 307 in the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, 901 G St. NW. Participants will visit the locations via slides of then-and-now photos.


As part of the first anniversary of the D.C. Punk Archive at DC Public Library, Cynthia Connolly, the publisher and one of the authors of Banned in DC: Photos and Anecdotes of the D.C. Punk Underground, will have a book signing of the new edition and a tour of significant locations for the punk scene in downtown D.C. -- just blocks from the library. The tour will visit four downtown locations shown in the book. At each, you are welcome to share additional anecdotes that never made it into the book. These stories will be recorded and placed in the archive with the book as a preservation of the D.C. punk community.

Locations in NW will include:
9:30 Club at 930 F St. NW
dc space at 7th and E streets NW
Lansburgh Center at 7th Street between D and E streets NW
Lonestar Beefhouse on 9th St. between E and F streets NW
Oscar's Eye at 9th St. and Pennsylvania Ave. NW

After the tour, come back to the library for a book signing with Connolly.
