Published Sep 05, 2008Washington, DC hardcore legends Bad Brains have been followed by a trail of controversy since their inception in 1977, so much so that they were practically blacklisted by DC clubs in the late 70s and forced to relocate to New York. This is well-documented in the bands staple song: "Banned in DC.
Possibly a result of the bands PMA (positive mental attitude), things have come full circle and the band have booked a gig at Washingtons legendary 9:30 Club nearly 20 years later. To make it even more epochal, the show will take place on November 4 on the eve of the U.S. federal election. Dont forget to vote, Americans!
As we previously reported, Bad Brains' front-man H.R. will release a solo album on September 30, and open for Bedouin Soundclash at the Sound Academy on September 12 in Toronto.
