Want to live in a home that contributes to the city's punk rock history? Well, you could either wait for a home 13th & Euclid to go on sale or you could buy this Adams Morgan home where Minor Threat played their first show. The influential four piece hardcore band, which featured Dischord Records founders Ian MacKaye (also of Fugazi fame) and Jeff Nelson played their first show at the Calvert Street rowhouse in December of 1980 with, among other bands, the now infamous punk pioneers Bad Brains. The walls of the eight bedroom townhouse with exposed brick show no signs of damage from mosh pits gone awry, but it's easy to see how a band could have set up in the area by the bay window and how a hundred or so teenagers could then pack in on the open hardwood floor. Ask for the 3,381 square foot townhouse is just over $2 million. Check out the gallery of the home above.
