SALAD DAYS: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC (1980-1990) examines the DIY punk scene in USA's capital. It was a decade when seminal bands like Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Government Issue, Rites of Spring, Fugazi and others released their own records and booked their own shows, without major record label constraints or mainstream media scrutiny. The SALAD DAYS documentary is packed with testimonies of Ian Mackaye, Henri Rollins, Thurston Moore, Dave Grohl and other forces to be reckoned with.
As a Sonic City special; SALAD DAYS: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC will play at Budascoop Kortrijk only once!
Sonic City presents FELIX KINDERMANN's video-sound installation:
'SEPARATED (Dirty Beaches, Improvisation)'
The work 'Separated (Dirty Beaches, Improvisation)' was created with the Canadian lo-fi, no-wave musician Alex Zhang Hungtai (alias Dirty Beaches) and his colleague Shub Roy during Sonic City '13 (the Beak> edition).
Alex plays the sax and Shub plays the keys but both are recorded separated from each other in a studio. In total isolation the two individuals don't know what the other one is playing. The imagination of each other, remains their only connection.
