Writer/director Scott Crawford and director of photography Jim Saah are roughly halfway through production for Salad Days: The DC Punk Revolution, a documentary on the 1980s Washington, DC punk scene expected out in 2013. Among those slated to be featured in the film are Ian Mackaye (Fugazi), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Scream) and Henry Rollins (Black Flag). Here's the film's description, from the official Facebook page:

“'Salad Days: The HarDCore Punk Revolution' will be the most comprehensive, honest and insightful look at the DC punk scene from the early 1980s to the decade's end. The film will include exclusive archival photographs, concert footage and interviews with dozens of bands, artists, label owners, zine publishers and others who helped mold and nurture DC’s underground community during this inspired decade of music.”

Several other updates, including screenshots from the film, are available here.

Position: Former Web Editor HQ: Orlando, FL (soon to be Cleveland, OH) Nice to meet you! I'm Bryne Yancey, the former web editor for Alternative Press. Prior to joining AP full-time, I volunteered at Punknews.org and freelanced for Myspace Music and AP, writing reviews and such.  I enjoy 80s thrash metal, leather-jacket pop-punk, obscure 90s/2000s emo, contemporary crust-core, and plenty in between. I'm a big fan of pizza, nachos, dessert, sleeveless t-shirts, wearing shorts year-round, sunglasses, science fiction, dry humor, horror, the Florida Marlins, the Orlando Magic, the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Tampa Bay Lightning. Vinyl is great; Spotify is equally and differently great. Green Day's "Dookie," Bad Religion's "All Ages," and the Suicide Machines' "Battle Hymns" changed my life. I don't think our scene has ever been as exciting or promising as it is right now.
