1929 Calvert Street NW
Hardcore real estate fans, this item is for you.
The rowhouse on the edge of Adams Morgan where Minor Threat played their first show is now for sale, UrbanTurf has learned. Although the December 1980 concert was brief, the gig at 1929 Calvert Street NW (map) launched the band’s brief career.
Current owner Naveed Ashraf bought the property in 2003 when it was a group house. He rented it for several years before recently converting it into four apartments.
“Minor Threat had their first concert on the first floor of the house,” Ashraf, who is opening up a restaurant/sports bar on H Street NE called Sin Bin, told UrbanTurf. “That floor is now apartment #1, with the same hardwood floors.”
While only together for about three years, Minor Threat is one of the bands credited with popularizing the straight edge hardcore sound, along with Bad Brains and Black Flag. Members Ian MacKaye and Jeff Nelson went to Wilson Senior High School (our founder’s alma mater) and went on to form the band Fugazi after Minor Threat disbanded.
