Foo Fighters leaked some major news at their 9:30 Club show [PICS & VIDEO]

Foo Fighters open venues ... it's what they do ...  as Dave Grohl pointed out last night during their sold out 9:30 Club show - the famed venue's first post pandemic show.  They also played the first (two) shows at The Anthem in DC and the first post pandemic show at NYC's Madison Square Garden.  


The 9:30 Club show was epic ... in true FF Fashion ... playing for nearly 2.5 hours - they rolled through the hits, covers, and some DEEP tracks! 


Here are some pics and videos from the show : 






But it was another comment Dave made that caught everyone's attention at 815 V St last night - while reminiscing about the 'old 9:30 Club' , Dave let the cat out of the bag - sharing the news that the team that runs the 9:30 Club will be opening a new club next door  - one that will resemble the old 9:30 Club in size and appearance.  Dave also joked that Foo Fighters will play the first show there too! 

Dave also revealed that while in town - he had been recording with his old band SCREAM at Inner Ear Studios in Northern Virginia!

David Byrne shares 'Songs That Make Me Cry' playlist [LISTEN]

ICYMI - each month, lead Talking Head David Byrne, shares a themed playlist on his website (DavidByrne.com)


His September playlist includes his favorite songs that make him cry.


His description of the list:

"No surprise, a fair number of country and alt country songs here. But there are also some heartbreaking soul songs, some contemporary RnB, dance pop and some contemporary singer songwriters. Obviously, to have this effect on us, the song and delivery have to connect to us in ways we can relate to- a tragic accident is not affecting, but a tragic accident that happens as a vet is driving to a reunion with his wife and child, now THAT’S heartbreaking.

Dreams within reach, visible, graspable, but then dashed to a thousand pieces. A small business goes bankrupt, not so moving, but the owner being a refugee who overcame impossible odds to achieve this dream -- only to have it snatched away by a rapacious landlord... Now, we’re more engaged. Maybe it’s the specifics that pull us in?


Why do we like this? Why do we luxuriate in sadness and heartbreak? I’ll bet there are way more tragic and melancholy songs than happy ones. Does it somehow paradoxically make us feel better to connect and feel the ache?"

Dave Grohl and Guns N' Roses' BottleRock jam session cut short after breaking the festival's curfew

One of the special things about music festivals is the unknown about what could happen when you have so many musicians in the same space ... 


One of those magical moments happened at the BottleRock Napa Valley Festival when Dave Grohl joined Guns and Roses during their encore performance of Paradise City (!) 


The only issue with this reunion of former foes: it happened after the fest's strict 10pm curfew - forcing organizers to cut the sound :/


Lucky for those of us who were not in Napa for the show - fans have shared footage to the web ... including the band continuing to play after the house sound was cut off 





This isn't the first time Grohl and GN'R jammed - the two teamed up for Paradise City in 2017 in Oklahoma City
