Get there a little early and settle in. My favorite spot is on the floor toward the back because it sounds the best. Just grab a beer, a cupcake, and enjoy! – Civil Twilight
Quite possibly the best venue in the world, go see a show here on a Sunday night. Sometimes the bands are amazing and the crowd isn't overwhelming.
Founded by Dody DiSanto and Jon Bowers, the 9:30 Club was the home for alternative music in D.C. during the early 1980s and was a regular stopping point for bands touring the east coast.
This is the best place to see a concert in DC, period. Wear comfortable shoes -- standing room only!
Make sure to hit up basement bar after show
