“Pump Me Up: D.C. Subculture of the 1980s,” at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, looks at those once-ubiquitous Globe Poster Printing Corporation posters that promoted go-go concerts throughout the District. The exhibit will open Feb. 23 and run through April 7.
In the ’80s and ’90s, D.C. residents couldn’t miss these concert posters. They were the prime publicity tools for Washington’s thriving go-go scene and they were conceived at Globe Poster Printing Corp., the fabled 81-year-old Baltimore press.
