The Jesus and Mary Chain

From 9:30 club listing: Like the Velvet Underground, their most obvious influence, the chart success of the Jesus and Mary Chain was virtually nonexistent, but their artistic impact was incalculable; quite simply, the British group made the world safe for white noise, orchestrating a sound dense in squalling feedback which served as an inspiration to everyone from My Bloody Valentine to Dinosaur Jr.

Though the supporting players drifted in and out of focus, the heart of the Mary Chain remained vocalists and guitarists William and Jim Reid, Scottish-born brothers heavily influenced not only by underground legends like the Velvets and the Stooges but also by the sonic grandeur and pop savvy of Phil Spector and Brian Wilson.

    Hey, I need a tix if anyone has an extra. I will meet you at DC9. Hopefully 9:30 Club is like the rest of the US with people bringing the one they didn't need to the show.

    Hey everyone, I just found out I have to help a friend with an urgent matter on Sunday night. I am SO bummed I can't make it to the concert. So I hope you can all use this website to continue planning and to meetup without me. I have 2 tickets, so if anyone has not bought theirs yet, I'm happy to deliver them personally if you are in the city (I work near Dupont Circle) or in Alexandria (where I live). Let me know!

    September 6, 2012

    • Mark J.

      Nejla, do you still have an extra ticket? I can drive to Alexandria to pick it up tomorrow. I know this is short notice so if it's not possible then no worries.

    Let's meet at DC9 from 6-7, that way if some people are a bit late, we can still all meet up and walk in together. I'll try to post something to this page letting you all know where we are sitting in case some people can't make it to DC9.

    Hi Santiago, it's $35. What time are you planning to meetup? I can bring it to DC9 if you are coming there before the show.

    September 3, 2012

  • Santiago Daniel L.

    Hi Nejla how much for the ticket?

    DC9 has a show that night too. Will we have to pay cover to eat?

    August 4, 2012

    • Andy

      Nah, DC9 doesn't charge cover. If we wanted access to go to the stage area where the band plays, we'd need to pay, but just to go in and eat we don't.
