Sunday Sessions 3 Year Anniversary
We're celebrating 3 years of Sunday Sessions this month! Thanks to all our Sessions fam for the continued support. We couldn't do it without you! <3 <3 <3
And introducing… Sunday Sessions OPEN DECKS from 8pm-10pm!
Sunday Sessions has always been a grassroots underground dance community event, and we're launching a new feature to warm up the night as we start the night our fourth year of Sessions together: OPEN DECKS!
HOW IT WORKS:
On locals nights and some special events, we will have a list at the door with 3 x 40min time slots listed (those three slots are 8:00-8:40pm, 8:40 — 9:20pm, 9:20-10:00pm). First DJ to arrive gets their first choice of slot. We encourage DJ's who wish to participate to arrive for 8pm, and sign up for their slot of choice. Once those 3 slots are claimed, that's it for the night until next time (no signing up for future Sessions — same-day only).
REQUIREMENTS: We must still respect the musical style of the event, and the flow of the evening, so this is NOT OPEN FORMAT.
This opportunity is for underground house music DJ's only, so no hardcore, techno, EDM or commercial dance, trance, dubstep, jungle etc. Any genre that falls under the «house music umbrella» is acceptable: deep house, funky, Chicago, jackin' house, progressive house, tech house, etc.
NO OUTSIDE EQUIPMENT please. We're keeping it simple and DJ's must play off USB's (or CD's, if anyone still uses those), using the CDJ2000nxs and DJM2000Nxs mixer already set up in Mercury Lounge. No laptops. controllers, etc.
Doors @ 8pm — 2am | FREE b4 10pm, $7 from 10pm-12am, and $10 after 12am | Mercury Lounge, 56 Byward Market Square | 19+ w/ ID
