WTOP reports that his wife, Amy Farina, and former bandmate Jeff Nelson threw the party that was called “a heavily guarded secret.”

It was held at Saint Stephen & Incarnation Church in Columbia Heights with no alcohol and only vegetarian snacks. Mr. MacKaye is a vegan and advocate of the “straight edge” lifestyle, abstaining from alcohol, drugs and even caffeine.

The term was coined by Minor Threat with their song “Straight Edge.”
