Come out and support the next generation of music fans and make history by participating in the inauguration of DC's newest all-ages venue, 9th & Beats. Dave Mann, Sweat Tea Pumpkin Pie Music Festival founder, is helping promote the venue and offering guest passes for 20 people to the soft opening on Wednesday, December 12. Email him at [masked] with the subject line "9th & Beats soft opening guest" and include your name + a friend's, and mark your calendar. Getting on the guest list is on a first-come-first-served basis, so contact Dave soon. In the meantime, check out the fb page and see how preparations are coming along, http://www.facebook.com/9thandbeats

The evening's entertainment includes performances by The Sea Life, http://thesealife.bandcamp.com/, and Go Cozy, http://gocozy.bandcamp.com/. Thanks to Dave Man and 9th & Beats for this opportunity to get a seek preview of the venue and see two great acts for the price of none!

    Can someone tell me if more than 20 people are allowed to attend the soft opening? I am confused because 23 aging hipsters have rsvp'd yes, and I thought the limit would be 20. I just sent an email to Mr. Mann asking him if I could go, so this may be resolved shortly. thnx! jennifer

    Answer from Dave on FB page:

    " Hello all. So originally, "open house" was going to be from 7-8:30pm for media only BUT my publicist said that it would make more sense to let everyone in at the same time. So we will have complimentary drinks and light snacks available at 7pm and on (while supplies last). The live entertainment will start at 9pm on the dot. I am going to post the bands below. Sorry for the confusion."

    OK, now I'm confused. I just got this email and am not sure when I can show up and more importantly, whether I'll have a shot at the free drinks:

    "Hello there Julia,

    Just a couple of things before we see you tomorrow night for our soft opening over at 9th & Beats.

    First off, Team 9th & Beats is incredibly thankful for your support and we are looking forward to having you at our venue tomorrow night. With that said, things will kick off at 7pm with complimentary drinks and light snacks (while supplies last).

    Secondly, the following will be on our guest list

    Julia Kyles (+4)

    That's right.... +4 !!! Why, cos we want to show off our space and it's our way of thanking you for wanting to be part of this event."

    Actually, I think this is a good way to get to know us. I think there will be opportunity to get to know folks. Also, I want to make sure everyone knows about the free ticket offer on the Facebook Page:

    I'll be there, but the start time is 8.30. This is from an email I received:

    "Anyways, we have an open house from 7-8:30pm before the soft opening but this is for media only (sorry, y'all). We will have all of your names on the guest list and will be opening up the space to you all at 8:30pm. There will be two bands that night (The Sea Life & Go Cozy) and possibly a comedian as well."

      You're good. I've moved on to shouting at squirrels.

    I am getting really ticked that all the stuff I want to go to is on nights when I have work engagements here or out of town. Harumph.
