In January, D.C.’s 9:30 Club marks its dual anniversary, celebrating 35 years in existence and 20 years in its V Street NW location. When the venue announced the official World Fair anniversary celebration and exhibition, tickets disappeared within hours, according to the club.
But if you missed out, cheer up: The 9:30 Club is extending the party two more days.
Free tickets for the World Fair on Jan. 8 and 9 will be posted Dec. 18, the venue announced today. “The event will be an all-encompassing, all-ages experience highlighting the historic past and present of the 9:30 Club and chronicling 35 years of memories and memorabilia from musicians, staff and fans,” according to a press release.
The second round of World Fair tickets go up for grabs 10 a.m. Friday on Ticketfly.
