This feature is about two things: one, that I love the early DC punk scene; and two, the DC punk flyers. I remember that collecting show posters was a part of the experience of being young and going to shows. These pieces of paper sometimes had really rad art on them that would make me want to check out what bands were playing – plus they made your room look cool! Flyers can tell you a lot about the scene that they come from, and the sense of humor or political views of the people who created them. Today I want to share a HUGE collection of DC punk flyers which have a different flavor to the Westcoast flyers that were being made at the time. I will always be amazed by how young kids were able to create these works of outsider art without the use of photoshop, and with only a healthy dose of DIY imagination. Come along with into the 80’s artistic state of mind of one of most important punk scenes ever…FLEX YOUR HEAD!
