Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello performs to a capacity crowd to close out 2012.

The reopening of Echostage in NE DC’s Langdon neighborhood has reestablished The District’s #1 nightlife concert series. Internationally recognized, Glow has been bringing the world’s best DJs to DC since 1999. David Guetta referred to it as his favorite party in the world in 2010.

Recent Glow at Echostage events featuring David Guetta and Calvin Harris have cemented a large-scale, weekly concert option for Washingtonians.

With a sizable production (stage, LED wall/lasers, the same sound system that tours with Coldplay), wrap-around mezzanine, four bars and a ‘no-frills’ warehouse-style vibe; Echostage was named the #38 club worldwide (#4 in America) in the 2013 DJ Magazine Top 100 Clubs poll. The publication’s yearly DJ and club listings are definitive guides to global dance music trends.

While Glow’s weekly ‘EDM’ series is the foundation of Echostage events, they are far from the only options the venue offers. Inauguration Weekend saw hip-hop icon 50 Cent and the infamous Young Jeezy perform together. African stars Teddy Afro and Jah Lude have also performed for Washington’s sizeable Ethiopian community. The venue also hosts a World Boxing Union event this June. With more concert events in the pipeline, Echostage has, according to many, skyrocketed to the top position when it comes to concert venues in DC.

  • Atmosphere: The legendary Howard Theater is one of Washington, DC’s oldest concert spaces (1910). It is recognized as a historic venue by the National Register of Historic Places. It has hosted the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Abbot & Costello, Sammy Davis Jr., Buddy Holly, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, The Wailers, Blue Oyster Cult and more. The venue went dark in the early 80′s, until a $29M renovation project began in September 2010. The venue was reopened in April 2012 with a star-studded Gala featuring appearances by Smokey Robinson, Berry Gordie, Savion Glover, Dick Gregory, Wanda Sykes and host of other talent. It’s a absolutely gorgeous building from the top down, inside and out.
Venue Overview

The Howard Theater is a proper concert hall: a semi-circular space with the stage being up front. Complete with a sunken pit/dance area, pit-level tables, booths on each side and a balcony/mezzanine. There are two bars (1 up and 1 down) along with a full-service kitchen. Bathrooms are downstairs.

The building itself is an impressive site. Clean, white and it retains the venue’s past charm. The entryway features marble floors and walls, ceiling high glass doors, large photos of past greats and a BB King-autographed guitar.

Recent shows have featured The Wailers, Kendrick Lamar, Jagged Edge, Brian McKnight and more.


Events can be found on The Howard Theater events calendar and feature everything from Steez Promo bass parties to R&B/Soul artists, rappers, bands, gospel choirs and more.
