About the group

This Meetup group is for indie and local music fans to see some great shows, meet some new people, and support independent/small label and local bands in the process.

We attend shows in the DC/MD/VA area with a focus on smaller concert venues such as the 9:30 Club, Black Cat, Rock & Roll Hotel, DC9, Iota Club, U Street Music Hall, etc.

Suggest venues, shows, and bands!

Please suggest new venues, shows, and bands! Any genre! This group is active and you should be able to find someone else interested in seeing the show you want to go to (and not have to drag your friends who are not so interested in that band or music in general).

How our events work

All of our events have an Event Host who will send a message to all RSVPs with a contact phone number and a general plan for a time and specific location to meet up. With some events, the plan may be to just to meet up inside the venue. If you would like to volunteer to host an event, send Dave a message for details.


New to Meetup or new to the group? Feel free to send a message to our organizers! You can also post questions/comments about specific shows on the event page for that show.

Hope to meet up with you soon!
