Coda: 9:30 memories, looking for the Mothership
Two big stories bookended our week. J. Freedom du Lac's 9:30 club oral history that runs in Sunday's magazine is a great read and the online version - with photos, interviews, performance clips and more - will keep you occupied for a good long while. We decided to take a look back and remember some favorite shows from the new location and some gems from the original spot. Earlier in the week it was all about the Mothership! Chris Richards trekked through the forests and junkyards of PG County looking for the holy grail of funk. If you haven't read the story, you're missing out on one the best of the year. If you've read it, read it again. There were also bonus interviews with George Clinton and Bernie Worrell plus a review of the Parliament-Funkadelic show at 9:30 club on Monday. And did President Obama find the Mothership? Also this week: it's tough to sell out, but some artists are still finding ways to do it; an Iceland volcano wreaks havoc with festival lineups; hip-hop professors get graded; and Nickelback set off lots of explosions at Verizon Center. See you next week!
