The Punk Rock Type w/ Roman Mars

The Howard Theatre

620 T Street Northwest

Washington, D.C. 20001 Map

Event Info

Punk rock was never just about having a mohawk and wearing a Clash button. It was a movement that redefined the design world. At its heart and at its best, it became a model for equality, inclusion, and authenticity in the face of fascism, corporatism, and economic injustice. At the dawn of Reagan’s America and at the vanguard of this fight, DC punk’s fans, followers, and artists created a unique space in DC whose impact ultimately spanned continents and decades.

Join us for a live conversation with Roman Mars (of 99% Invisible and Radiotopia) and Bill Barbot (formerly of DC bands Jawbox and Burning Airlines and owner of local creative agency Threespot). They’ll discuss DC punk’s mission and history, and how its voice is relevant more than ever.

Stick around after the talk for a surprise musical guest and listen to one of DC’s coolest bands!
