Friday, September 2 SCREAM and guests Early 80’s DC punk heroes return to Seattle. Scream are considered one of the benchmark bands in the history of the Washington, D.C. hardcore music movement. Along with bands such as Minor Threat and Government Issue, Scream ultimately merged the attributes of the movement, which were blinding speed, heavy political and social connotations in the lyrics, unpretentiousness of attitude, and shunning of commercialism. Their music is faithful to the roots of rock, but spun itself into other genres by employing sounds that predate the raunchiness of grunge, while saluting reggae and speed metal. A notable alumni of the band is Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl!
