Washington, D.C. is the Capital of the Nation, and sometimes it thinks it’s the Capital of the Nation’s Entertainment – and even if it’s not, it just took one more step in the direction!!

Tonight under Hollywood Glitz and Glamor, the D.C. Southewest Waterfront will officially open to the citizens of the DMV.

Among the venues that are officially opening tonight will be “The Anthem.”    It’s a 6,000 seat Auditorium opened by Seth Hurwitz; and they are opening with a Bang Night #1.


The Anthem opens tonight with the “FOO FIGHTERS,” with Frontman and D.C. Native Dave Grohl.   It’s going to be spectacular. We don’t think of Washington as being out on the water; but if you’ve ever been out on a boat, it really is. It’s really amazing” says Hurwitz.
“We want to make it the best venue in the world,” Hurwitz told WTOP. “It will take some tweaking, but we’re gonna get there. Our goal is to make it truly the best experience for both the bands and the audience.

Even with all the Hollywood style celebrations tonight at the Waterfront, the Washington Nationals play Game 5 at Nationals Ballpark to a capacity crowd, which is less than a mile away.

Fireworks will be shot tonight for the Waterfront celebration, which means they could be for the Waterfront and the Washington Nationals Game.  “Two Birds with one Stone!!!”
