Dag Nasty

The Salad Days documentary was celebrated over two days in Washington DC, when six hardcore bands of yesteryear reunited to play Black Cat on December 28 and 29. As discussed, the shows featured a reunion of Dag Nasty, along with appearances from Government Issue, Kingface, Black Market Baby, Youth Brigade and Scream. Check out video of all the bands below, including the full Dag Nasty appearance.

Also among the videos below are a pair of appearances from HR (of Bad Brains), who played the BB classic "Right Brigade" with Black Market Baby and "American Justice" with Scream, as well as apperances from Alec MacKaye (of The Faith) and John Stabb (of Government Issue) on a cover of "Steppin' Stone."

Both nights were incredible. Everybody was aware of the irony of the night, but it was in support of a good cause. Shawn Brown walked on to the stage and commented, "Welcome to the punk rock time machine." Every band gave it their all in support of the documentary in the making, "Salad Days: The Birth of Punk in The Nation's Capitol." It was a big party and everybody was having a blast. Great to see old friends and new.
The director of the film, Scott Crawford, is hoping to see a release sometime in summer 2013. Trust me, it will be good.

I wouldn't waste my money on these old fakes cashing in

cashing in? i doubt they much, if any, money. i have to say i would be afraid to hear dag nasty in 2012 just due to the chance of it soiling my love for their first lp. brain baker WAS a great guitarist in 25+ years ago.

Fakes? Why? We were asked to help a friend out to raise money for a movie about a music scene we were all involved in. And cashing in??I can tell you, for the time, money, travel, rehearsals, etc. involved for each band to do the show, NO one cashed in. We did this because that's what people do for people they care about: they help.

King Face

PS. Baker is still great.

I know some of those guys and sell outs they are not, all good dudes just playing music. Speaking of Shawn Brown -

SHAWN BROWN (Swiz), JASON FARRELL (Swiz, Bluetip, Retisonic), DAVE 8 (Swiz, Bluetip) and JOE GORELICK (Bluetip, Retisonic, Garden Variety)....listen.
