Brightest Young Things announces the news that U Street Music Hall and 9:30 Club formed an alliance. The agreement on paper makes a lot of sense – U Street Music Hall will feature up and coming acts in the 9:30 Club’s Back Bar; 9:30 Club will present up and coming artists and electronic acts at U Street Music Hall.

The alliance provides some revenue and street cred for 9:30 Club and the cache of the 9:30 name for acts over at U Street Music Hall. For the fans, though, it’s a win-win kind of deal. A smaller venue at U Street provides an intimate setting for people to get up close and personal with their favorite acts.

As someone that geeked out over meeting Kim from Los Campesinos! this weekend, I can relate. What is NOT mentioned is any indication this move is to counter the influence of the newly opened Fillmore in Silver Spring (previous coverage at Washingtonian).
