D.C. FUNK PUNK THROWBACK JAM AT THE 930 CLUB
Celebrating the PUMP ME UP: The DC Subculture of the 1980s exhibit at the Corcoran Gallery and the release of the film THE LEGEND OF COOL "DISCO" DAN, the D.C. Funk Punk Throwback Jam was a concert event on February 24, 2013 at the legendary Club 930. In the spirit of the 1980's thriving music scene in D.C., the show plays tribute to the 1983 Funk Punk show, the last Minor Threat show in which they opened up for Go-Go legends Trouble Funk. Roger Gastman, Joseph Pattisall, Iley Brown and the 930 Club organized the event and enlisted several bands to bring back the memories and melodies of the local Go-Go and hardcore scenes. Trouble Funk, Scream, Junkyard, Static Disruptors, Youth Brigade, DJ Kool, Black Market Baby, Shady Groove, Worlds Collide with special Guest Stinky Dink, DJ Tommy B, DJ Scorpio, and others played the nostalgic night of music, hosted by D.C. native Henry Rollins. The event sold out and a D.C. Funk Punk Throwback Jam is scheduled for 2014.
