Beefeater Washington, D.C.
Beefeater played its first show in the summer of 1984 at Washington D.C.'s Food for Thought. The band mixed punk with funk and jazz, and Tomas Squip's lyrics dealt explicitly with politics and spirituality. The combination of Beefeater's pointed approach with Rites of Spring's intensity became the inspiration for much of the music that would come out of the Washington punk scene for years to come.
