What we’re about
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!

- Demob HappySongbyrd Music House, Washington, DC
This band started showing up in my daily mixes on Spotify, and Spotify got it right (for me anyway). I like what i hear. Then saw they are coming to the intimate Songbyrd music house near Union Market in DC. Voila! - good excuse for another concert listing in meetup.
Blurb from ticketing site Dice (https://dice.fm/event/5rbn8-demob-happy-16th-oct-songbyrd-washington-dc-tickets)
"From ‘OK Computer’ to ‘Screamadelica’, history has shown that a band’s third album is when shit starts to get real. When, after an introductory debut and a second that tests new waters, the particular alchemy of a group stamps its personality in ways that no other configuration of individuals can do; when the outside voices have been tempered and all that’s left is a perfect cocktail of confidence, skill and momentum. It’s a theory that’s been proven time and time again, and one that Newcastle trio Demob Happy are underlining with ‘Divine Machines’: a third album that harnesses their delicate tightrope of heaviness and melody, sweetness and riffs, and rides it up to the stratosphere."
