The Anthem is huge but still feels intimate. It somehow looks and feels like the 9:30 Club, which Hurwitz also co-owns, while giving off its own vibe. Thursday night, the sightlines on the two balcony levels — even the standing areas behind the boxes of premium-priced “Super Excellent Seats” — were remarkable for a venue of this size, and the floor was packed shoulder to shoulder. The sound was excellent in most places, though it did get a bit muddy in spots that have an overhang above.
It’s not hyperbole to say The Anthem is going to change live music in D.C. for the better.
