Open Culture featured the YouTube channel of Sohrab Habibion, who documented a bunch of punk shows in D.C. from 1985-1988. I’ve shared some faves below.

  • Fugazi

    Imagine seeing Fugazi in D.C. in 1987? This is the closest you’ll get.

  • The Lemonheads

    The beloved Boston band before they went pop.

  • Gang Green

    Another Boston punk favorite.

  • Jerry's Kids

    This is quickly becoming “This is Boston, not D.C.”

  • Honor Role

    Balancing out the Boston bands with another D.C. favorite (by way of Richmond, VA).

  • Scream

    Before Dave Grohl joined the band!
