Akashic HADC Lucian Perkins Hard Art, D.C. 1979

In 1979, a soon-to-erupt punk scene took hold in Washington, DC, with bands like the Bad Brains, Teen Idles, the Untouchables, and the Slickee Boys, among others, at the forefront. Lucian Perkins, later a Pulitzer Prize–winning photojournalist for the Washington Post, was then an intern who photographed several pivotal shows over a short period of time. His now-iconic photos of these shows are complemented by punk rock musician Alec MacKaye’s narrative that runs throughout the book and an essay by Henry Rollins.
