Lucian PerkinsHard Art, D.C. 1979

In 1979, a soon-to-erupt punk scene took hold in Washington, D.C., with bands like the Bad Brains, Teen Idles, the Untouchables, and the Slickee Boys at the forefront. Lucian Perkins, later a Pulitzer Prize–winning photojournalist for the Washington Post, was then an intern who photographed several pivotal shows over a short period of time. Hard Art collects these now iconic photos, pairing them with a narrative by Alec MacKaye and an essay by Henry Rollins.
