Pretty Vacant


WILLIAMSBURG The 90s don’t have quite the reputation for great punk as the 70s and 80s do, but anyone who discounts the decade is sorely missing out – bands as diverse as Bikini Kill and Green Day redefined the genre and shaped music that we listen to today. Tonight at Public Assembly, editors from literary culture project Vol. 1 Brooklyn are joined by four punk-lit luminaries to discuss the decade’s effect on the genre, from breaking big to selling out. Authors appearing include Sara Marcus, whose Girls to the Front covered the riot grrrl movement; post-punk anthologist Norman Brannon; and The Awl’s Maura Johnston.
