(April 14) We all scream for Scream
More often than not, a band’s name has little bearing on its music. That’s not the case for the recently reunited Scream. The influential band from Bailey’s Crossroads is known for its crunchy guitars, rapid rhythms and political lyrics as well as being one of the linchpins of the legendary D.C. punk scene. Scream plays a benefit show at Northwest Washington’s St. Stephen’s Church Saturday night. No word yet on whether former drummer and current Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl will be in attendance.
