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.
