Punk Love: Susie Horgan (formerly Susie Josephson) is one of the first great photographers to grow out of and document the early punk scene in Washington DC. Her iconic photographs from the Washington DC punk scene in 1980-'81 are instantly recognizable by people familiar with Dischord Records -- the Teen Idles 7" , The SOA 7", the first Minor Threat 7" and the Flex Your Head LP all use her photos as central themes. Because her perspective is personal, she doesn't view the scene from the outside but as a participant, the result is a documnt of both history and of friendship. Punk Love. Pictures from Punk Love are currently being exhibited at the Govind Gallery in Washington, DC until March 3.

Dance Of Days: Washington, DC's creative, politically insurgent punk scene is studied for the first time by local activist Mark Andersen and arts writer Mark Jenkins. The nation's capital gave birth to the most influential punk underground of the '80s and '90s. Dance of Days recounts the rise of trailblazing artists such as Bad Brains, Henry Rollins, Minor Threat, Rites of Spring, Fugazi, and Bikini Kill, while examining the roots of PMA, straight edge, Dischord Records, Revolution Summer, Positive Force, and Riot Grrrl. This book provides a window on the hidden history of a grassroots rock revolution that burst into the mainstream in the early '90s following the success of Nirvana and its groundbreaking album, Nevermind.
