Bad Brains


Now in their 35th year, give or take a hiatus and lineup change or two, Washington, D.C.’s volatile, reggae-loving hardcore-punk legends have seemingly always found a reason to keep touring and have kept their original lineup intact for close to a decade. Most recently, the group appeared in the documentary Bad Brains: A Band in DC, which appeared at this year’s South by Southwest conference and tells the story of the band through archival footage and animation. On top of this, they’re rumored to be entering the studio to work on a new album soon. With H2O and fellow DC hardcore group Scream.
