The Mainstage consists of a 7000 square-foot performance room and features high-quality, professional sound, a large floorspace that affords great sight lines, and a rock club atmosphere unparalleled in DC. This room features national independent touring acts, local bands suitable for a larger club atmosphere, and monthly DJ dance events. Our Mainstage hosts the best underground/alternative acts that DC has to offer, as well as some of the most amazing national acts around.
