The DC Office of Cable Television, Film, Music & Entertainment (OCTFME) is pleased to honor the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC as the January 2016 Location of the Month.

The 9:30 Club, located in Washington, DC’s historic Shaw neighborhood, is not only one of the District’s foremost live music venues, but also one of the most iconic in the country. Named ‘Nightclub of the Year’ by Rolling Stone Magazine, Billboard, and Pollstar, the 9:30 Club is a place bands have aspired to perform and music fans have flocked to for 35 years now.

Over the years, the 9:30 Club played venue to some of pop music’s most iconic acts, including Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Al Green, Nirvana, James Brown, Smashing Pumpkins, the Foo Fighters, Adele, Deadmau5, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Jack Black, Justin Timberlake, and Pink – just to name a few.

The standing only venue, which holds a capacity of 1200 people, offers no bad sight lines to the stage with great floor and balcony views, a top-of-the-line sound system and four full bars throughout.

To learn more about the 9:30 Club, to view photos, or get more information on how to book the facility as a media production or still photography location please visit the Location of the Month feature on OCTFME’s web site.

In 2011, DC’s film commission, which is now apart of the DC Office of Cable Television, Film, Music & Entertainment, launched the Location of the Month to bring attention to the wide range of cinematically compelling locations that are available to film and television productions. Former Locations of the Month recipients include the Angelika Pop-Up at Union Market in Northeast, the National Museum of the U.S. Navy in Southeast, and the Mansion on O Street in Northwest.
