For more than a decade Kansas House has been on of the D.C. area’s most beloved D.I.Y. show spaces, hosting performances by bands like The Rapture, Q and Not U, Black Eyes, Love of Diagrams, Dismemberment Plan, and Golden, to name just a few. But in just 60 days the tiny corner house, located on 900 N Kansas St. in Arlington, will go silent forever.
“My house (Kansas House) just got sold and will eventually be destroyed,” wrote Collin Crowe, a tenant and a member of the band Buildings, in an e-mail announcing the end of the house’s existence. “We got a 60 days heads-up that we gotta move out by December 1.”
The property is reportedly in the process of being sold to a Virginia based development company.
