Punk Ensemble

$206 ($196 members) · 80 minutes · Weekly for 8 weeks

Brash, unpolished, confrontational and thoroughly DIY, punk music began in the mid-1970s in the UK and US as a reaction against mainstream music and the political status quo. Since then, it's spawned numerous sub-genres and been the soundtrack for youthful rebellion in cities and scenes throughout the world. We will concentrate on punk's early days in the US and the UK in the mid-1970s, from the Sex Pistols, Misfits, and Buzzcocks to the Ramones, Talking Heads, and the Patti Smith Group.
