OCTOBER
We Celebrate Daniel Pearl World Music Days!

Daniel Pearl was a newspaper reporter and a violin player who traveled the world and used music to make friends in many countries. In 2002, he was murdered by terrorists while investigating a story in Pakistan. His family decided to carry on Danny’s work and use music to help people learn to respect each other and honor diversity. October 10 was Danny’s birthday, and all our performances this month are part of Daniel Pearl World Music Days. This month, musicians all over the world are dedicating concerts to our shared belief that even though we may have different races, religions or ethnic backgrounds, we can all work together to achieve a better, hate free world for everyone.

DIRECTIONS

Cafe Nine is located in the historic Ninth Square district in downtown New Haven. Look for us at 250 State St. - one block north of where the New Haven Coliseum used to be (it was demolished).

Washington Post visits Cafe 9

http://tinyurl.com/khw99j2 Not so long ago, New Haven’s Ninth Square neighborhood was just a stretch of empty red brick buildings. Now, it’s chockablock with art (including Artspace, a warehouse of mini-galleries), quirky shopping (a Jamaican dress designer is just doors down from the century-old Acme Furniture) and divey ethnic food options….

FAQ

For Bands

How do I book my band at Cafe 9?

Please submit all press kits electronically to bookcafenine@gmail.com  Include anything you think we should know about your band, some music and the dates you are looking for. We no longer accept mailed demo submissions or take phone calls at the venue regarding booking.

Do you have a P.A.?

We are a small room with good acoustics and our P.A. provides clear amplification to fill the space. We provide all microphones,cables and D.I.’s as well as a resident sound person. If you are booked here and have special sound needs, let us know and we can usually make it work.

I am an out of state singer/songwriter/band without a booking agent. What’s the best way to get a gig at Cafe 9?

We suggest before you email us, that you first network within the New Haven local music community and find a band that is of the same style. Offer them a gig in your area in exchange for setting up a show here with them at Cafe 9.

We are booked! What’s next?

Since most of our deals are based on a percentage of the door proceeds, it is in your best interest to promote your show here aggressively to get people out to see you, revel in your music and help you make some money. Send us some posters, put the show out there on all your social media and email lists. Word of mouth is still the best so tell all your friends personally. We also have a large media and radio list available for you too. Just ask us to send it to you or your publicist.

For Music Fans

Are your events All ages?

Never, all of our shows are 21+ only.

 I am worried this show will sell out. How can I get tickets?

All our ticketed events are sold in advance online on our website. We do not sell tickets in advance at the venue.

Where can I park?

We have limited parking available in the LAZ lot directly behind the venue on Crown St. after 6 p.m.There is also parking on the Street throughout the neighborhood which is free after 9 pm. If you can walk a couple blocks we suggest you also use the LAZ Chatham Lot on the corner of Orange and George St. where parking at a reduced rate is available for Cafe 9 customers. DO NOT PARK in the Apartment lot opposite our Crown St. Entrance. You will definitely be towed.

Do you serve food?

We have some snack foods available to tide you over but if you are looking for dinner let us recommend one of the many great restaurants in the neighborhood.

Do you rent the venue for private parties?

Cafe 9 can be rented for private parties with some advance planning. Because of our scheduling we are usually not available for spur of the moment plans.

Still have questions? Contact bookcafenine@gmail.com
