My bro and I can play some killer licks on our instruments, can we play DC9 tomorrow?
Probably not tomorrow, but maybe in the future. DC9 does not accept physical press kits, so please email us your Myspace, Facebook, Mp3s, or EPK page where we can hear some music. It’s very nice to know where you have played in DC proper, what you HONESTLY draw, and any other useful selling points about your band. DC9 books about 3 months in advance. We listen to every submission, so please allow for some time to get back to you if we are interested. DO NOT CALL THE VENUE REGARDING BOOKING.
Does DC9 have seating?
DC9 does in fact have some seating. We have bar stools and booths on the ground level of the club. Upstairs where the entertainment takes place, we really like to encourage standing, rocking, and dancing for the shows, but if you need a break or just a seat altogether, we do have some booths available.
