Songwriter Series and Listen Local First One Year Anniversary
$10 Mainstage / Doors at 9:00
DC's music advocate "Listen Local First" is turning 1!!! To celebrate we are hosting a special Listen Local First show at The Black Cat featuring the touring DC-based collective "The 9 Songwriter Series". The show presents 9 musicians, featured over the past year by LLF, collaborating with one another to make for a night of great DC-based music.
Founded in 2008 by singer/songwriter Justin Trawick, "The 9 Songwriter Series" is a touring live music event based in Washington, DC. The show was created with the idea of nine artists getting together and combining their talents in order to play in nicer clubs and to larger amounts of people. Each installment features nine solo singer/songwriters performing in rotation and often sitting in with each other, providing audiences with a rich, intimate, varied listening experience. Where else can you hear almost 30 songs from nine different artists for only $10? To date, over 60 different artists have participated in "The 9", at events in DC, Arlington, Bethesda, Baltimore, Annapolis, New York City, Richmond, Charlottesville, Charlotte, and Philadelphia.
