Rated by Rolling Stone Magazine as the ‘#1 Big Room in America’ ahead of the likes of the famed Radio City Music Hall in New York City, The Tabernacle in Atlanta, and The Fillmore in San Fransisco, The 9:30 Club in Washington, DC had a lot to live up to the weekend I traveled down from Providence, RI to catch 2 nights of the jamtronic group Lotus.

While the band was on absolute fire playing some of the most cohesive music I have seen from them to date, the make or break point lied on the venue. To sum up The 9:30 Club in one word I would use SIMPLICITY.


noun \sim-ˈpli-sə-tē, –ˈplis-tē\

: the state or quality of being plain or not fancy or complicated

:  directness of expression

: something that is simple or ordinary but enjoyable


The 9:30 Club in Washington, DC is a music venue above all else. Many of the rooms, clubs and “venues” that I travel to all over the country try to be something more then the ‘music room’ they serve. The 9:30 Club‘s one focus is music and in terms of that they take no short cuts. The structure is simple inside and out. You will find nothing fancy or eye catching on the outside in an attempt to lure you in. Once inside the plainness remains much of the same, but where The 9:30 Club might lack in eye appeal it MORE then makes up for in sound. The quality of the acoustics inside the midsized Washington, DC Club is second to none. The solid foundation and simple structure is built for one thing…The Sound of Music. — Michael Urban
