For years, the 9:30 Club has had a raffle (by bringing food for the homeless) to win a pair of passes for every show for a year. I pride myself on seeing a lot of shows, but even I don’t think I could keep up with last year’s winner:
Q: How many shows did you attend?
A: If I remember correctly, it was 166 shows at the 9:30 Club plus around another 10 at other venues in D.C., Arlington, Philly, and NYC. I’m including shows and dance parties where I might have only stayed a few minutes, but that was the beauty of being on the list.
