The kind of news I hate to hear. A really unique music venue will be closing its doors soon.
DC’s The Red Palace was apparently a too-well-kept secret in live music on H Street.
Saw a handful of really excellent artists at this spot and was looking forward to seeing more up-and-coming acts. Since it opened just two years ago I was able to catch Liam Finn, The Alternate Routes and Howlin Rain in the sparse upstairs space – all three really fantastic shows. I also missed out on a sold out Gary Clark show which pissed me off. Never caught a burlesque act there but I always kept a close eye on the schedule because occasionally a real gem would pop up.
Here’s to The Red Palace.
