9:30's Sleater-Kinney Show Postponed
Last night's Sleater-Kinney show at the 9:30 club came to an abrupt end before it even really got started.
According to the club's message board: "As soon as Pepco and the Fire Department ascertained that [the billowing, smelly smoke] wasn't an errant cigarette burning some trash but was rather a transformer in an increasing state of instability, the show was cancelled."
The show has been rescheduled for Thursday, Aug. 3, doors at 7:30 p.m. Ticket stubs from last night's show are good for reentry. If you can't make the Thursday show, the club is offering a refund to people who present their ticket stubs in person or mail their stubs back to the club by Friday, Aug. 4.
We'll keep you posted as we hear more details. Were you in the crowd walking out of the show last night? Did the evacuation feel "orderly" to you?
UPDATE: Ed Stack, general manager at the 9:30 Club, informs us that Pepco worked overnight to install new transformers, so the club is back up and running. The staff has rented a huge generator and will keep that around, as Stack put it, "just in case."
The opening band, the Rogers Sisters, got to perform last night before the evacuation and they won't be able to come back for Thursday night's make-up show. Consider yourself lucky, ticket-stub-holders. Stack tells us that Sleater-Kinney "use[d] up their one free day" on this farewell tour to come back and play D.C.
