i'm under a lot of pressure to keep my fans happy, people.  there's only so much of me to go around.  i'm sorry if i'm not living up to your expectations anymore.  i'll be in the corner crying.

Will there be a live component of some sort, too? A TBA show other than the one already taking place on that night or maybe on the night after (dark as of now)?

don't know of any confirmed shows, but that doesn't mean there won't be anything.  i don't even know the exact date of the anniversary.  the article comes out next weekend, but that's not timed with anything else in particular that i know of.

More like the front row corner of the ice at Verizon Center watching Ovie dominate.

i am quite lucky to have the opportunity to see a game from time to time.  sometimes i score good seats. 

tonight's game was a blast.  can't wait for the playoffs to start.

Oh God please no! Haven't Fugazi, Mackaye and the rest of their ilk done enough to suck every ounce of fun  and relevance from the DC music scene?

Really that whole straight edge/dischord scene is the worse thing to happen to this town (musicwise).

Would a one off show really bother you that much?

Don't worry, I have it on good authority the one-off will be at The National.

A few things about the article:

1) great to see Thatguy and learn about how he appeared on the scene

2) Why does Ian MacKaye appear in every one of these type of things?    Dischord shows were only a small, small part of the 930 Club's history.   

3) I can't believe the entire WUST Hall was purchased for $700,000... that'll barely get you even a rowhouse in DC these days.

Hutch, I think you would appreciate this interview with Bruce Hellington (formerly Merkle) of 9353...

You know I was tempted to say no but the truth is if it was at the 930 as part of the 30th anniversary festivities YES.

Mackaye and his peeps can have a monopoly on the special events and tributes and reunions at the Black Cat - which they all but do- but the 930 too? Come on!.
 
DC has to be about more than these guys and if its not lets leave the night open and see what happens...We won't have any less fun than at a Fugazi show..thats for sure.

The 30th anniversary should be a big celebration and I'm sorry to say Fugazi does not fit the bill.

OK so here is what we know so far.


According to this, the anniversary is, in fact on 5/31. And according to JA, The Fleshtones are playing as part of the anniversary show (most likely with other bands). Shit's starting to come together!

Cool, the Fleshtones are about as opposite of Fugazi as you can get.   (Unless the Meatmen are reincarnated)
