Dave Grohl Appears In Trailer for D.C. Hardcore Documentary, ‘Salad Days’
Long before he was wrapped up in Seattle's grunge explosion, Dave Grohl was involved in another regional rock scene -- the Washington D.C. punk and hardcore movement of the '80s.
Of course, Grohl was just a kid growing up in Virginia at the time, but that provided him with a front row seat for the burgeoning scene that flourished around the likes of Fugazi and Black Flag. The Foo Fighters frontman gets nostalgic about watching his heroes in the trailer for the upcoming documentary, 'Salad Days: A Decade of Punk In Washington, DC (1980-90).'
Written and directed by music critic Scott Crawford of Metrozine, the film follows the rise of one of the most important music scenes of the modern era. "Contextually, it was a cultural watershed that predated the alternative music explosion of the 1990s (and the industry's subsequent implosion)," reads a press release. "Thirty years later, D.C.'s original DIY punk spirit serves as a reminder of the hopefulness of youth, the power of community and the strength of conviction."
The movie is set for release in December. Check out the trailer below:
