About

The Spot on Kirk is an intimate music venue and gathering place on Kirk Avenue in Downtown Roanoke, Virginia that runs as a non-profit.  A wide variety of local and national musicians take the stage to provide a live-music experience like nowhere else. You name it, you’ll hear it at The Spot: folk, blues, Americana, singer-songwriter, hip-hop, R&B, and even Zydeco. With just enough room for 130 people and not a bad seat in the house, you’ll feel like you’re part of an exclusive performance. There’s no better place in Roanoke to get this up-close-and-personal to your favorite musicians.

 

 

About Down by Downtown:
The Spot on Kirk first opened under the non-profit umbrella of Down by Downtown Music, Inc. With more than 30 live music performances at over a dozen venues throughout the city, Down By Downtown (DxDT) is an annual celebration of Roanoke’s growing music scene. Participating venues host live music April 14-16, many of which are free.  DxDT was organized almost seven years ago as a part of Roanoke’s Creative Connectors Class.  For the past several years DxDT has partnered with the Blue Ridge Marathon to provide live musical acts at the marathon finish line.
