Washington's 9:30 Club, run by Bethesda-based I.M.P., and U Street Music Hall have formed a cross-venue booking alliance, the two Washington clubs said today. They say the partnership will allow them to foster up-and-coming talent. "There will be bands that we present at U Street Music Hall that will one day headline at Merriweather," said I.M.P. chairman Seth Hurwitz, who also runs the Columbia amphitheater, in a statement. It also enables the two clubs to be competitive against Live Nation, which opened the Fillmore in Silver Spring in September in a bid to grow its slice of the midsize club market.

When the Fillmore Silver Spring was finally unveiled this month, scores turned up to watch R&B star Mary J. Blige perform. But the 2,000-capacity theater won't just be a new stage - it has the potential to rewrite the landscape for Baltimore and Washington booking agents as well as music lovers.
