This Humanitini will explore the history of, D.C.’s native sound, Go-Go, and the city’s world-renowned punk and hardcore scene. A fun and exciting mix of local historians and artists will share their stories based on research and personal experiences.

Panel and audience will become one as our experts engage with, and learn from your musical experiences – no matter what part of the country you are from! Stick around to try out some go-go dance moves and to hear what got hardcore punk “Banned in D.C.!”
