About This Event

Go-Go and hardcore emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s as uniquely Washingtonian urban youth subcultures. Iley Brown of Stride Records, 9:30 Club owner Seth Hurwitz, D.C. Go-Go and hip-hop figure DJ Kool, and musician Alec MacKaye (Untouchables, The Faith, and Ignition) share stories from these two underground music scenes and discuss their origins, folkways, and parallels. The panel is moderated by Washington City Paper managing editor Jonathan L. Fischer. To register, visit

$8 members; $10 public
