B and I checked out Pump Me Up: DC Subculture of the 1980s at the Corcoran last weekend. Having grown up in the DC area, I’ve been waiting impatiently for this exhibit to open. If you’re at all familiar with Go-Go or the DC hardcore scene, you’ll probably enjoy seeing the old photos and posters. Personally, what I found most interesting was the background on popular graffiti artists like Seven and Cool “Disco” Dan. Their tags are fixed upon my adolescent memory as part of the DC landscape, so it was really neat to see relics of these ghosts of my childhood.
This exhibit runs until April 7 so go see it while you can!
