    Billboard placed Northwest rock venue the 9:30 Club near the top of two of its charts.

    The company that keeps track of what's popular in American music said the V. Street club is the second "most influential" and second "hottest" in the country.

    The music industry bean counters came up with the rankings based on box office sales and the reviews from top concert promoters.

    Billboard placed New York's Bowery Ballroom as the top "most influential," and the Vegas Hard Rock Hotel as the "hottest."

    The City Paper quotes 9:30 Club owner Seth Hurwitz's reaction to the news: "it's just a f---ing rock concert."
