One Comment

  • Has anyone contacted Pulitzer Prize winning former Washington Post photographer Lucian Perkins about this event? His first assignment for the Post, in 1979, was to document the punk scene and his photos adorn the walls of the first floor of Local 16, for those who have seen them. He’d be a great addition to the lineup.
