A legend in the DC music scene.

According to a 9:30 Club spokesperson, club manager and crew chief Josh Burdette has died.

Casual club patrons may not have known Burdette’s name, but it would have been hard not to know his stretched earlobes, surly tattoos, and friendly smile. Burdette began working at the V Street NW venue in 1997, and for about as long, he was known as the face of 9:30 Club.

“Especially in my little part of the city, I see all types of people from all walks of life, from all around the world,” Burdette told Washington City Paper in 2008. “Fortunately, I get to see them when they’re having a good time.”

His death leaves a gaping hole in the heart of D.C.’s music scene.

The man was a legend in life, and now is one still. The DC music scene won’t ever feel the same without him.
