Rock and Roll Book Club

At The Current, we love music — and we love reading books about music. That’s why we created The Current’s Rock and Roll Book Club. Every week, we pick a book about music and share a review online; you can also hear Jay Gabler talk about each week's book on The Current at 8:30 a.m. every Wednesday. We’d love it if you read along with us — and let us know what you think, using the hashtag #RockandRollBookClub. Also, sign up for our monthly e-mail newsletter (below), and join our group on Facebook!

Rock and Roll Book Club: Photo books spotlight Fugazi and the D.C. scene


Two new photo books about the D.C. punk scene.

Glen E. Friedman's photos of Fugazi, captured in a new edition of his book 'Keep Your Eyes Open,' employ the same purist aesthetic the band brought to everything they did. Another new photo book, Antonia Tricarico's 'Frame of Mind,' spotlights women musicians in the D.C. scene Fugazi helped to shape.
