Editors' pick

The 9

Please note: This event has already occurred.
The 9 has a simple premise: Once a month, nine singer-songwriter types – both solo artists and members of bands who want to try flying solo – get together and play. They perform, they jam, they support each other. In honor of the first anniversary of the Listen Local First initiative, the Black Cat is hosting a special edition of the 9 on its mainstage. Musicians joining founder Justin Trawick include Christylez Bacon, reigning Washington Area Music Association artist of the year Margot MacDonald and Ryan McLaughlin of Typefighter.
