Joe Clayton's spot is the Auditorium. “It wasn’t Foellinger back then — just the Auditorium," says the D.C.-based CEO of the International Food Information Council Foundation
“So many great bands came through and performed in that space. U2 was a brand new band with one album out when I saw them. That’s right — U2 played at the Auditorium before they came back and played Assembly Hall years later.
“Same with the Talking Heads — they played the Auditorium in 1979.
“We saw some great live acts in this intimate setting.”
