Josh Burdette, the face of the the 9:30 Club since 1997 and a fixture of the East Coast music scene, passed away Sunday, September 1st. Ticketfly’s CEO Andrew Dreskin remembers Josh as a caring and passionate music lover:

Josh was a great example of how you can’t judge a book by its cover. Just the other day I was explaining what that meant to my son. I had the good fortune to work with Josh for the past seven years on the Virgin Mobile FreeFest. He was one of our security chiefs. I feel lucky to have known him. Contrary to his appearance, he was a kind and gentle soul who always treated our patrons with empathy and respect. He was part of the fabric of the 9:30 Club and I know that he will be missed greatly by the extended IMP family.”
