9:30 Club launches record label

By Washington Post editors

The 9:30 Club is expanding its reach.

Club officials announced Wednesday night that it will launch a record label, 9:30 Records, TBD.com reports.

Singer-songwriter Justin Jones will be the first artist on the label.

A launch party for the newly formed record label will be held on Sept. 16, featuring a performance from Jones, a Virginia native. It's an invitation only affair, but 9:30 Club subscribers will have a chance to win tickets through a lottery.

This has been a big year for the club which celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2010.

Click Track also has more on the club and other upcoming concerts.

Why do we call it a "record label" when we no longer have "records" with "labels"?

Because "digital distribution facilitator" doesn't have the same ring?

Do they hope to sell thousands of plastic and paper byproducts like in days of yore? Or are they going to give all music away free and hope it sells concert tickets? Congradulations kid, you will spend the rest of your life paying back the advance!

Good luck to them. It would be nice for D.C. to have a relevant "scene" again, which seemed to all but disappear over the last decade.

Great. With TicketMaster/LiveNation trying to put clubs like 9:30 out of business, I'm not surprised to see they turn to other ways to make a few dollars. I hope they're successful because the 9:30 club is a local treasure!

So is that how they're spending those exorbitant "service fees" that they tack onto ticket prices--funding a label?
