To celebrate the release of their new book, Live at the Safari Club: A People's History of HarDCore (Rare Bird Books), authors Shawna Kelley and Rich Dolinger will be giving a slide show presentation.

Live at the Safari Club is the uncensored oral history of a notorious underground punk venue in the nation’s capital, told by the very bands, fans, zinesters, promoters, graffiti artists, scenesters, senators’ kids and activists who made it happen.

From 1988 to 1997, the Safari Club was Washington, DC’s version of New York’s iconic CBGBs. An Ethiopian restaurant by day turned Go-Go club on Saturday nights, this windowless dive deep in the heart of the city then known as the “murder capital of the world” transformed into an all-ages venue every Sunday afternoon. New York bands Sick of it All, Murphy's Law, Bold, Earth Crisis and Gorilla Biscuits played their first DC shows on the Safari’s tiny mirrored stage. Southern California’s Chain of Strength, Insted, and Strife all breezed through at least once, while local legends Ignition, Kingface, Swiz, Battery, Damnation A.D. and Government Issue screamed for change.

«I spent much of the late 80s and 90s on tour with Fugazi and it seemed like something was always brewing back in DC while I was away.... Seeing the images in the book and learning more about the Safari makes me regret having missed the action, but also thrilled to know that kids will always find a way to make that action happen. It can’t be stopped!» -Ian MacKaye
