One month from now, "Pump Me Up: D.C. Subculture of the 1980s," will bring together relics from the District's punk, go-go and graffiti heyday under the Corcoran Gallery of Art's vaunted beaux-arts roof.
Now is the time to snag tickets to the exhibition's Feb. 22 opening party, a bash that will feature Henry Rollins on the wheels of steel, hopefully figuring out a way to spin go-go and punk in the same set. It's also your chance to mingle with exhibition curator Roger Gastman, perhaps the world's best-known street-art archivist. Gastman co-curated a 2011 urban art exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, has written books on the history of American graffiti and even consulted on the film "Exit Through the Gift Shop." He also just so happens to have left his own teenage tags all over the hard streets of Bethesda.
Tickets, which are $35 for non-members,
go on sale at 10 a.m. are on sale now.
