A WAMU series explores gun violence and aggressive policing in the nation's capital.
Before purchasing the 9:30 Club at its original location at 930 F St NW, Seth Hurwitz started independent concert promotion and production company “I.M.P.”– short for “It’s My Party.” From 1980 on, the company has organized concerts across D.C., at venues owned by Hurwitz (9:30 Club and The Anthem) and others that are not (Lincoln Theater, Merriweather Post Pavillion and U Street Music Hall). This fall, Hurwitz opened his biggest venue yet, The Anthem, with a 6,000 person capacity that is expected to drive business to the new development on the southwest waterfront, The Wharf. At a time when many cities’ concert scenes are dominated by nationwide conglomerates, the omnipresence of a local, independent company in D.C. is unique. Kojo talks to Hurwitz about his career bringing music to Washingtonians and the evolution and future of the live music in D.C.
