Photos from Salad Days Post-Premiere Party at the Black Cat

Saturday and Sunday night at the Black Cat, members of D.C.’s hardcore scene past and present came together to celebrate a local screening and pseudo-premiere of Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC (1980-90). Representatives from several D.C. bands were in attendance, and the showing included two reunions: one for Soulside, who headlined both nights, and one for Swiz, the unannounced special guest on Saturday. Sunday’s show showcased more of the scene’s current post-punk greats, with sets by Dot Dash and Office of Future Plans, and a special appearance by Salad Days director Scott Crawford on guitar for a song during the Soulside set. See photo galleries from each set below.
