930 F Street

Fond reminiscences fill this 2004 video documentary about the storied D.C. punk and new-wave club 9:30. The venue, now in its 26th year, moved to its current, more spacious digs in 1996, but the film focuses on the club's early days, when it was for many years the sole tenant of an old office building in a dodgy neighborhood. Tarik Dahir and Jeff Gaul interview former employees, patrons, and musicians like Bad Brains singer HR and Fugazi's Ian MacKaye, who explains how the club began hosting D.C.'s first hardcore matinees to serve underage fans. Overall it's an interesting history but a bit of a lovefest in which the only villain is an ill-placed pole in the center of the floor. 87 min.
