TVD Ticket Giveaway: DC9 10th Anniversary with Dead Meadow, The Apes, and Sunwolf, 2/14


Over the past 10 years, DC9 has become one of the most notable venues for off-beat acts and music that is left-of-center. The spot has been promoting and showcasing “music for the 21st century” to a growing crowd that comes out for a wide variety of musical styles and genres. From uptempo DJs to artistic guitar bands, the venue has created a platform curated and eclectic taste.

They’ll be celebrating their 10th anniversary with the help of Dead MeadowThe Apes, and Sunwolf tomorrow, and we’ve got tickets to give away.

Psych-rockers Dead Meadow having been playing around since the late ’90s. Their sound is equal parts hard rock and ’60s experimentalism with healthy inspirational cues from H.P. Lovecraft and Lord Dunsany. The band has been around in its time, appearing on the Peel Session before John Peel’s unfortunate passing. Dead Meadow has toured around the world and released several full-length albums and even a live cut album of their best live bits.

Garage rock outfit The Apes create a noisy punk aesthetic sans guitar. Though that might be a hard concept to digest at first, any taste of their catalog showcases a don’t-give-a-fuck attitude built behind keys, bass, and drums. The Apes have been playing around DC and the states since 1999, laying claim to knowing DC9 since its inception.

Sunwolf is a young band heavy on garage vibes. They came to prominance in 2010, opening for Ty Segall, the Pharmacists, and others with a live sound that became unpredictable and animalistic in nature. Their chaotic behavior aids their music in its raw ferocity.

For a chance to win tickets, tell us your favorite garage-y band. Jeff the Brotherhood is my pick.

The winner will be chosen at noon tomorrow and must confirm the tickets by 3pm for the show that night. Tickets are still available.
