The Verizon Center plays host to many chart-topping artists throughout the year and their stage for 2014 is set for some all-star performances from the likes of Jay-Z and Lady Gaga to The Eagles...just to name a few! However, DC also has a great smaller music scene that draws some top-notch talent. The award-winning 9:30 Club and U Street Music Hall have a jam-packed concert schedule for the next few months with emerging artists and some local favorites that you can't miss. Here are the shows you can catch us jamming at (but don't hold us accountable for our "dance" moves!)
