DC Concerts Overview

The Kooks - Concert in DC

Don’t let CSPAN fool you, there’s actually a lot of exciting stuff going on in our nation’s capital, and this certainly holds true for concerts in Washington, DC.

The District boasts a rich musical history, and the “Black Broadway” jazz scene that dominated the U Street Corridor in the 1920s is just the beginning of DC’s concert scene. The city also played a central role in punk’s seminal development in the 80s, and was an instrumental player in the development of house music at the same time.

Obvious concert hall choices in DC include The Verizon Center, a massive multi-use arena that packs its schedule with major touring bands, as well as FedEx Field a stone’s throw away in Maryland. 9:30 club is a huge player on the always-hopping U Street music scene and considered to be one of the finest independent concert venues in the city, unmatched only perhaps by the famous Black Cat a few minutes away.

DJs are heavily represented at DC9, and of course the seminal U Street Music Hall packs in some of the coolest bands, DJs and concerts around. Madam's Organ keeps the jazz and blues flowing amidst a deluge of liquor-filled kids up in Adams Morgan, while punk, ska, reggae, and a ton of eclectic live music blasts over H Street from the Rock & Roll Hotel.

No matter your politics, Washington, DC concerts keep everyone feeling right and make sure nobody is left out.
