Rich Dolinger and Shawna Kenney discuss their new photo book/oral history Live at the Safari Club: A History of HarDCore Punk in the Nation's Capital 1988-1998 (Rare Bird Lit), an idea germinated during Kenney's time in graduate school in UNCW's Department of Creative Writing. Live at the Safari Club is the uncensored oral history of a notorious underground punk venue in the nation’s capital, told by the very bands, fans, zinesters, promoters, graffiti artists, scenesters, senators’ kids and activists who made it happen. From 1988 to 1997, the Safari Club was Washington, DC’s version of New York’s iconic CBGBs. An Ethiopian restaurant by day turned-Go-Go club-on-Saturday nights, this windowless dive deep in the heart of the city then known as the “murder capital of the world” transformed into an all-ages venue every Sunday afternoon.
