DC’s Original 9:30 Club To House J Crew Store

    The current 9:30 Club in DC is in a neighborhood called the U Street Corridor at 815 V Street NW, but long-time DC natives may remember seeing early (probably hardcore) shows at the club’s original location and also namesake, 930 F Street NW. The club temporarily closed in 1995 and the original neighborhood is now home to such punk institutions as the Spy Museum and the National Portrait Gallery, and soon a J. Crew store in the club’s original space. Interestingly enough, The New York Times points out that the store will use the address 950 F Street NW, instead of the iconic 930 number, and links to this great collection of photos from the original club. [NYT via BV / photo via Craig Pennington]
