This one’s a good one from YouTube and it’s a little more contemporary, but given the artist in the video, I find this significant and musically historical.
Stevie Ray Vaughan himself, was live in the nation’s capital on December 27th, 1983. The venue was a place called the Wax Museum at 4th and E St. NW. Side note … he made his D.C. debut at the legendary Bayou on K St. in Georgetown. I’ll find some good posts on that place since it witnessed some pretty big acts (before they were big).
