The Black Cat is a nightclub and live music venue located in the U St. district of Washington, DC. The venue first opened its doors to the public in 1993, created with the sole purpose of showcasing the best in live independent music.
As far as this Black Cat's concerned, there's no such thing as bad luck. The Washington, D.C venue opened to near immediate success, catering to the city's long-neglected underground music scene. Soon, due to its growing popularity, the Black Cat was forced to expand. In 2001, the venue moved three doors down from its original space. Today, the Black Cat Washington features two different concert rooms (the Mainstage and the Backstage) and the Red Room Bar.
However, architecture and interior design aside, Washington’s Black Cat would be nothing without its line-ups. The Black Cat schedule of events takes pride in booking performances from artists of all levels; from local up and coming bands, to those already established on a national and international level. This includes the big names. Korn, The Roots, Sum 41, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Kelly Osbourne, Le Tigre, The White Stripes and Beck are just a few of the acts featured on the Black Cat schedule in the past.
Whether you're a loyal customer or a relative newcomer to the underground scene, there's no better time to visit this hidden gem. Make Eventful your source for all the latest events happening at The Black Cat Washington, D.C., and check out the schedule right here!
