Screech on stage at the 9:30 Club

By Dan Steinberg

The biggest D.C. sports news of the three-day weekend? Clearly it was Screech's appearance on-stage at the 9:30 Club with Virginia Coalition, "a band that has made its reputation with the blazing energy of its live shows and ability to play almost any style of music." Yes, that includes go-go, which is what prompted Screech to lose his mind on stage.

I mean, any time a D.C. sports mascot is fist-pumping on-stage at the 9:30 Club with a local band rocking some go-go, I thoroughly expect three frenzied e-mails about it, which is what happened in this case.

"This is a quintessentially DC moment from Saturday night at the 9:30 club," Reader Reba wrote me.

"VACO brought the Go-Go, and Screech straight up got live with those boys," Reader Kate wrote.

"People went buggy ding dong," wrote Reader Adam, who is technically not only a reader but the Virginia Coalition drummer. "It would be the equivalent of the Saints mascot (they have one, right?) doing a Zydeco or second line gig in New Orleans."

Who, Gumbo? Nah, this is better than that would be. Scroll ahead to about the 2:20 mark.

Well. It's safe to say 99% of people clicking on this link expected to see the "other" Screech banging to some go-go.

I agree with the above sentiment.

This was an amazing show! Not only did VACO blow the roof off the place but the School of rock kids demonstrated that there is an abundance of young talent in this area. Good Times!

Yep, definitely hoping for some Dustin Diamond news... he's actually 3rd on my list in my dead celebrity under 50 pool.

Screech is just a dirty old bird. Before they changed the suit from the egg shape to the current bird beak and baggy suit that damn bird stunk. The BO that came off that suit gagged my kids so bad that they told that damn ol dirty bird one night at RFK to "go away and take a bath".

Hope they were playing Friends Forever by Zack Attack.

Screech should have changed into brown flip-flops

Talk about a letdown. I hope AC Slater beats you up for this prank.

@PropJoe. Forget Dustin Diamond. I clicked expecting to see Chuck, RE or Back Yard. I wasn't expecting the group from VA.

Great! More go-go at Nationals Park in 2011, no "Sweet Caroline" -- that's a Red Sox song that should be banned from Nats games, whether the pink-hatted Ivy League interns in town like it or not.
