A Kickstarter campaign was started to fund a documentary called Punk The Capital: Straight from Washington D.C.

The film will tell the story of punk music in Washington D.C. in the late 1970s through the rise of "harDCore" in the early 1980s.

Through Thursday morning, the campaign has raised $16,351 of its $43,000 goal.  The campaign runs through June 14.

The campaign received a large boost when the Foo Fighters promoted the Kickstarter on their Facebook page.  Before joining Nirvana, Dave Grohl played drums in the DC hardcore punk band, Scream.
