The Anthem, on DC's Southwest Waterfront, stands empty as it awaits reopening after over a year of silence, chairs lined up for a show that never happened. From my cover feature in The Washington Post, May 7th.
"The digital marquee outside The Anthem the 6,000-capacity venue that anchors the Wharf, has remained frozen on “We will get through this” for much of the pandemic. Outdoors, the venue has set up a pop-up bar and restaurant along the water, but indoors, the main concert floor is still lined with seats in anticipation of a Nathaniel Rateliff show that never happened.
In mid-March, I walked the darkened balconies in the kind of silence you can hear. With only auxiliary lighting washing over skeletons of beam work and neat rows of chairs, and no musical act to draw my eye to the stage, the Anthem was a geometric feast. I found myself just gazing — star-struck by an empty space."
From 'Frozen in Silence', my cover feature for The Washington Post in May.
