‘Salad Days’ Punk Documentary Unveils New Trailer, Premiere Date

By Ally Schweitzer

Update, Oct. 10: The film screens Dec. 19 at AFI Silver Theatre. Tickets sold out fast for the early showing; a second 10 p.m. showing has been added. Also, Soulside’s Dec. 20 show at Black Cat is sold out; a Dec. 21 show has been added.

Scott Crawford and Jim Saah’s documentary Salad Days: The DC Punk Revolution is just one of a few D.C. punk documentaries in the works, but it’s probably the best known: In 2012, Crawford (who used to write and edit for Bandwidth) and Saah launched a Kickstarter campaign to help pay for editing and other expenses, and it handily surpassed its $32,000 goal, grossing close to $55,000 with support from nearly 1,000 backers.

Now those supporters have a date to look forward to: Salad Days will premiere Dec. 19 at a D.C.-area venue to be announced, followed by a Dec. 20 show at Black Cat with back-in-the-day D.C. punk bands Soulside and Moss Icon. Show tickets go on sale this Friday, Oct. 3.
