The same thing happened to the Club 930 in D.C. It was a little hole in the way in downtown, and then moved out to the Burbs. A lot of history got left behind when it moved.

And, of course, CBGB. I don't even recognize that neighborhood, now.

The Masquerade may not have had the national import that those two clubs did, but it occupies the same local status, I think.


Agreed. You might have the 9:30 Club mixed up with another venue. In the 80s, I believe it was downtown, but moved to a bigger location in NE DC (U Street or V Street, I think) before I moved there (1996). I saw a bunch of shows there from 1996 to 1998, and I think it's still in the same place - definitely not the suburbs.

I lived in DC briefly in '95 and it was still on F Street. My world was very small and U Street seemed like the suburbs.

I saw a bunch of shows there, none of them metal, but being in the same physical room where Minor Threat and Black Flag and Bad Brains all played when they were getting started definitely added to the mystique of the evening.

ditto. I've seen countless shows there. I first started going to shows there when I was 15 or 16. Despite its flaws, I'll definitely miss that place. I love the building itself and the concept of having 3 stages on separate levels. I saw a few bigger shows on the lawn out back and those were fun too. Lots of memories, that's for sure!

The girl behind the bar said it will still have 3 levels in a similar layout--the same Heaven, Purgatory and Hell.

There will also be a Bondage & Discipline Room!

NO IT'S OKAY THERE'S STILL TIME!!

What I really want to know is are they transplanting the ladies room sinks that have been jacked up since roughly 1997? I'm gonna miss those. They're like a comforting blankie. Crying or Very sad

Thought this was interesting. Been kind of an odd no man's land back there of fine art framing and transmission shops for years.

Should be interesting. I'm sure that area will be developing heavily in the coming years.

Looks like about a 10 minute drive from Center Stage.

Just got an email too about their move after the Wrecking Ball in August.
The midtown location is a bit easier to get to if you are coming from the north or Marietta especially..

I am genuinely sad about the Masquerade. It's been a big part of my life since I moved here 26 years ago. But I'm not paying $110 just to see Gorilla Biscuits, so I guess my Final Show was....whatever that last show was.

Remember when they used to serve breakfast at like 2 am? You'd just be dancing minding your own business, and out would come chafing dishes full of eggs and sausage. I would always think "who the fuck is going to eat eggs here??"

And we could get in with our student IDs. Those were the days. I got my 15 year old sister in with my roommate's ID. "Fix your hair like the photo." Done.

RIP, Masq. I will miss your wet floors.

Coworker of mine got a half off ticket through Groupon. I'm counting on a few Excelsior Mill ghosts being awakened from their slumber by these developers.

Yeah, I just got an email with a half-price deal. So if I HAD paid $110, I would be really pissed right now. I guess tickets aren't flying out the door?

"Anticipatory nuisance." That sounds about right.
