Most serious music fans on the East Coast have heard of the 9:30 Club, thanks to its monumental place in rock history. Some of the biggest names in indie, hardcore, post-punk, and alternative music have played at the original location in the 1980s, and then during the late 1990s, the club moved into a new and larger location on the U Street Corridor with a standing capacity of 1,200 and additional bar and balcony seating.
Today, this location and its well-maintained interior has made the club one of the best-reviewed mid-major venues, and it is much beloved by DMV bands and music fans. The raucous atmosphere, beautiful sight lines, and top quality sound have made the 9:30 a preferred location for live album recording, concert film production, and live radio broadcasts.
