It's a sad day for the music world in Washington DC because the iconic U Street Music Hall has announced that they are closing their doors for good.

In a statement released by the venue, they revealed that they are shutting down "effective immediately" due to "the pandemic, mounting operational costs that never paused even while [they] were closed, and no clear timeline for when clubs like [theirs] can reopen safely." Ultimately they were left with no choice.

What's even more heartbreaking about this? U Street Music Hall closed down back in March just days before their 10-year anniversary.

They did however extend a huge thank you to everyone who donated to and supported them over the last 7 months...and to every artist, performer, staff member and fan who helped make the last 10 years what they were.
