Beyond retrospective, this Humanitini event examines DC punk from hardcore glory days to current scene. In the wake of several documentaries, band reunions, and music archives, we ask: what is the significance of punk today? Does its ethos of dissent still resonate? From politics and DIY to reconstituting the “punk past,” join the conversation about your local punk culture(s).
Our signature “think and drink” program brings Washingtonians together to discuss issues that are timely, engaging, entertaining, and usually all of the above!
Humanitini is the name of the drink and the name of the program! These exciting happy hour conversations bring panels of academics, culture curators, musicians, experts, or whomever the occasion might call for into bars and restaurants for lively conversation and intellectual debate.
