9:30 Club, Rams Head Live rank high on Pollstar's Top 100 Club list
Two area clubs ranks high on music industry trade magazine Pollstar's list of the top 100 clubs around the world for the first half of this year.
The list is based on the number of tickets sold.
The No. 1 spot is, unsurprisingly, the 9:30 Club, with more than 135,000 tickets sold in six months. That's quite a bit more over the No. 2 spot, the Belgian club Ancienne Belgique, which sold 98,215.
Rams Head Live in Power Plant Live ranked sixth with 75.460 tickets sold, the Birchmere in Alexandria was 37th with 39,755 tickets sold, Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis was 43rd with 36,736.
But wait, there's more ...
The Recher Theatre in Towson was 85th 19.074 tickets sold and Main Stage @ Sonar was 96th with 16,034 tickets sold.
Some interesting facts: Rams Head On Stage holds about half as many people as Sonar's main stage. The 9:30 Club, which holds fewer people than Rams Head Live, has topped this list for the past couple years at least, if not more.
