DC's most famous concert venue, the 9:30 Club, serving as a pantry for its employees and a safe space during the protests that rocked the neighborhood in 2020. From my cover feature 'Frozen in Silence' for The Washington Post.
"The Dead Kennedys played the 9:30 Club on March 11, 2020. It would be the club’s last show before the city shut down.
I bought a single ticket as soon as I heard that the mayor had declared a state of emergency in the District. Looking back, knowing what I now know about the coronavirus, my decision doesn’t make much sense, but I just wanted to be at a sold-out 9:30 Club — it didn’t matter who was playing. I suspect many others felt that way. This display usually hangs in the lobby of the 9:30 Club. It's now resting in a stairwell.
When weeks turned into months of closure, I.M.P., the collective that books the 9:30 Club, the Anthem and several other local venues, went from a workforce of nearly 2,000 to a handful. To help their furloughed employees, they set up a food pantry on the club floor so that donated meals could be picked up. It’s been active for over a year now. During the protests that began after the murder of George Floyd, the 9:30 club allowed marchers inside to pick up water, charge phones or use the facilities. The room became a safe place during a turbulent time — closed, but not."
