Concert: Black Cat's 18th Anniversary 
The Black Cat arrived in D.C. shortly after President Bill Clinton started his first term, and stuck around long after Slick Willy left the White House. As far as D.C. venues go, you could say it's unimpeachable--and tough. Founded with cash from Dave Grohl, who was then between Nirvana and the Foo Fighters, the club opens its door every night to a different U Street than the one of 1993, when the best parts of the corridor were but low-rent shadows of a jazz-age past. The Black Cat stuck it out though, moving only once, and only down the block. That persistence, as well as a carefully maintained punk aesthetic, has made the Black Cat something of a must-play for every kind of band touring up (or down) the East Coast, from Korn to Radiohead. This Friday, the acts--The Max Levine Ensemble, Garland of Hours, Oh So Peligroso, others--will be smaller. But then, Radiohead was small once upon a time as well. September 2 at the Black Cat, 1811 14th St. NW. Phone: (202) 667-4527. Web: blackcatdc.com.
