When Angel meets Cupid in a bar and her band gets an opening slot on a tour, life takes some unexpected turns into a past she tried to leave behind. Part rock show, part booze-soaked road trip through the dive bars and dark clubs of the late 90’s east coast music scene, Angel Number Nine shows us that the things we need are sometimes found on the roads we tried to avoid.

Rorschach will transform a two-level former retail space at 1020 Connecticut Avenue NW into a dingy 90s rock club, complete with a working bar. There will be a pre-show experience with curated listening stations, vinyl for sale, and an exhibit highlighting hidden histories of DC music.

This show contains mature content.
