washingtonpost.com – Mark Andersen is many things. A writer, historian and activist, Andersen is best known as the co-founder and spiritual godfather of Positive Force D.C., a group whose mission of social justice has, for nearly three decades, been intimately intertwined with the local music scene. Since its inception in 1985, Positive Force has sponsored numerous benefit concerts by such punk stalwarts as Fugazi and Bikini Kill, often using those events to raise money — and solicit volunteers — for its work championing progressive causes.
