From Washington City Paper:
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.
