The Washington City Paper has a great new story on the Kansas House, a punk house in Arlington, Virginia, just outside D.C., that lasted for 13 years before it finally got sold to a development firm in October. As writer Aaron Leitko describes it, “It was a messy place, the basement in particular. An astute punk-rock archaeologist could probably have found junk down there dating all the way back to the early ’90s.” Having stayed at the Kansas House a number of times on trips through D.C., I can corroborate that statement big time. In fact I vaguely remember seeing some nude Polaroids there, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they were the same ones Leitko says one of the house’s last tenants discovered while cleaning out that basement.
