9.30 club

I just opened The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli only to be met with this beauty of an opening line:

“I’m on the toilet at the 9.30 Club, and I’m wondering how mermaids pee.”

I haven’t felt a greater spiritual connection with a character in my life.

I just wanted to post these photos together.

“Babes In Toyland at the old 9:30 Club in DC. Kat’s using a metal carpenters file on her guitar. The result was a gnarly wall of eardrum-piercing noise! It made a couple of her guitar strings break… one of which cut her finger open, causing her to bleed like a stuck pig. A great show!”

They were most likely taken at this show:
