Dis is da second installment of De-U.c.e. Double's Diamond in da Rough. Dis is an on goin' monthly blog post dat will feature somethin' special from in or around da diamond district. Dis month I choose Club Pure's open mic mondays. Dis open mic night was hailed in Billboard Magazine as 1 of da premiere locations in da area 2 find quality musicians, poets, & comedians. Club Pure is a place where many local & national artists such as Raheem DeVaughn & Tabi Bonney got their start back when it was know as Bar Nun. A lotta videos have been filmed live from dis club & all around da surrounding U street corridor. If U're not from anywhere in or around our area peep out da pics above & footage below 2 get a feel 4 da average atmosphere dat's in & around open mic mondays @ Club Pure. Videos swindled courtesy of Judah's blog FTDMVO in association wit Jben.ok...enjoy!!!
