The 9:30 Club is teaming up with the DC Central Kitchen to bring the best in music, food, and drinks to V Street on Sunday, May 19. And we want to send you, for free!

Sound Bites will feature a mixology battle with the best bars on 14th Street, all creating cocktails with a TBA secret ingredient. The battle’s already getting heated, with Black Jack star E. Jay Apaga keeping tabs on Birch & Barley on Twitter. Free food tastings will also be aplenty, with local favorites like Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken, El Centro, H & Pizza, Sticky Fingers Bakery, and more all stopping by.

Plus, they’ve enlisted a killer lineup. Lee Fields & The Expressions will be headlining, while Deathfix, DJ Will Eastman, The Razz with Ron Holloway, Rich Morel’s Hot Sauce, Batala, and Kid Congo all performing. but first, get a preview of Lee Fields’ soulful, passionate vocals:

Best of all? All proceeds will benefit the DC Central Kitchen, who brings more than just meals to those in need by training unemployed men and women to kickstart their culinary careers.

Tickets are still available from Ticketfly and the 9:30 club and Merriweather Post Pavillion Box offices, but we have a pair of tickets on the house. TO WIN, mention your favorite meal at a D.C. restaurant/food truck/hideout/etc. and a song that best represents that meal in the comments below.
