Club 9:30 — A New Wave of Night Life

Richard Harrington, The Washington Post, 1 June 1980

FIRST CAME the artists, then the galleries. Now the rejuvenated area around the 900 block of F Street NW is about to welcome its first nondisco night spot. The 200-seat 9:30 club, which opened Friday, represents not only a time and place (it is located at 930 F St. and its shows start at 9:30 p.m.), but a faith in downtown that has been absent since the riots of 1968.
