Suburban Wasteland: Punk Culture in Montgomery County from 1977 to 2002
November 27 - December 3
History Conversations REWIND
Since the late 1970s, the punk rock subculture has thrived in Montgomery County. The time between the opening (1977) and closing (2002) dates of Yesterday & Today Records—a punk scene hub that both inspired and employed countless punks—was a profoundly active time for punk music and culture in Montgomery County. This presentation by John Davis–originally from the 2022 Montgomery County History Conference–explores the bands, record labels, fanzines, record stores, and other pieces of the local punk ecosystem that made Montgomery County an integral part of the highly influential Washington, DC-area punk subculture.
