This one is for the fans of the New Orlean jazz-jam band super-group Galactic, fans of New Orleans, fans of free stuff, and fans of alcohol.
Tonight at the 9:30 Club’s basement bar a/k/a The Backbar (entrance on the 9th St. side of the club) they are starting the party early with a special happy hour before Galactic’s concert. The happy hour will run from 6 to 7 o’clock and is open to anyone (not just ticket holders). Anyone attending the Galactic show who goes to the happy hour gets first entry to the show itself; so you can get sloshed and then grab your favorite spot to watch the show before the front doors open. The happy hour will have food and drink specials, including a $6 special on Hurricanes; raffles for free swag, like tix to future shows; and rumor has it a visit from members of the band!
