WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- A Columbia Heights man donated his treasure trove of local punk rock memorabilia to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library.
Mark Anderson hopes his collection, which includes everything from posters to buttons to records and instruments, will teach people about the D.C. punk scene for generations to come.
Anderson says one of the most important bands of the local punk scene was a group called Fugazi and a bootleg t-shirt saying "This is not a Fugazi t-shirt" demonstrates what they stood for.
"Fugazi didn't make t-shirts. T-shirts are the single most lucrative part of the music business, that merchandising. But Fugazi felt like they were a band and they didn't want to be a clothing company," Anderson said.
