D.C. ROCK FANS TAKE NOTE: R.I.P. Josh Burdette, 9:30 Club manager. That was one of my old D.C. hangouts. The best rock show I ever saw — Steve Earle double-billed with The Rainmakers, for a lousy five bucks — was there, though that was before Josh’s time. Mickey Kaus was at that show too, I later found out, though we didn’t know each other back then.
