Short of sitting down with Seth Hurwitz and Dody DiSanto for a gab session, the best way to learn about the history of the 9:30 Club may be to attend the next edition of the D.C. Music Salon.

On Wednesday, Feb. 9, the local music-focused discussion group led by Marc Eisenberg will convene at the Watha T. Daniel-Shaw Library to "investigate the history and importance of D.C.'s 9:30 Club," Eisenberg wrote in an email.

Staff members, musicians who've performed at the 9:30, and attendees will be on hand to talk about the club. The event will also include a screening of the hard-to-find documentary 930 F Street, which features live performance footage and interviews with Ian MacKaye, Chuck Brown, and others, and explores the venue's beginnings in the Atlantic building at 930 F Street, NW (the club moved to its current V Street, NW home in 1996). Filmmakers Tarik Dahir and Jeff Gaul will be on hand for a post-viewing discussion.
