'930 F Street' documentary

The 9:30 Club was the center of Washington's legendary 1980s music scene, back when it was at 930 F St. NW. The club is now more than 30 years old and long ago moved to its current location on V Street. But veterans of the punk scene still remember the club's early days, and two of them, Tarik Dahir and Jeff Gaul, made a documentary about it, titled "930 F Street." The film, which features interviews with some of the musicians most closely associated with the 9:30, such as Ian MacKaye of Fugazi, is being screened by the DC Music Salon on Wednesday at the Shaw Library, and the filmmakers and 9:30 Club veterans will be on hand to discuss wild nights long past.

Wednesday at 7 p.m. Shaw Library, 1630 Seventh St. NW. Free.
