NPR is offering the original streams of its live concerts from the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., sharing over 100 shows performed between 2005 to 2017.

Released in celebration of the club’s 40th anniversary, the extensive list includes audio and video performances from Bon Iver, James Blake, Death Cab For Cutie, Arctic Monkeys, Best Coast, Future Islands and more. “The 9:30 Club changed my life,” Bob Boilen, All Songs Considered Host and Tiny Desk Performance creator, said in an entry. “I was there in the beginning as a musician in the first band to play that club, Tiny Desk Unit. I wrote an essay to commemorate that club and to highlight the importance of nightclubs across the country as we all ponder their future. While we have some time before we can be back in the venues we all love, dig through this archive and spread the word.”
