Jun. 28-Jul. 4: A Band Called Death

Before the Bad Brains, the Sex Pistols, the Ramones, heck! Before punk, there was a band called Death. During the early '70s, three brothers from Detroit started making fast and loud rock music, but were shunned by record companies. Nearly three decades later, a dusty demo tape made its way out of the attic and into the hearts of a new, and much younger, fan base. You can see the documentary A Band Called Death through July 4 at AFI Silver Theater in Silver Spring.
