"A truly compelling narrative . . . a powerful piece of cultural reporting."-"Washington Post"

Washington, D.C.'s creative, politically insurgent punk scene is studied for the first time by local activist Mark Andersen and arts writer Mark Jenkins. The nation's capital gave birth to the most influential punk underground of the '80s and '90s. Dance of Days recounts the rise of trailblazing artists such as Bad Brains, Henry Rollins, Fugazi and Bikini Kill.

Mark Andersen is outreach coordinator for Emmaus Services for the Aging, and lives in Washington, D.C. Mark Jenkins writes about music and film for the "Washington Post," "Washington City Paper," NPR's "All Things Considered," and other outlets. He lives in Washington, D.C.
