(FREE) Tickets to Housse de Racket @ 9:30 Club


As part of our collaboration with the 9:30 Club, we’re pleased to present concert ticket giveaways every Tuesday. Each week, we’ll post a heads up about an upcoming show and what you can do to win two tickets to it. This week: Parisian synth duo, Housse de Racket. These franco pop-stars, have played with the likes of AIR and Pheonix and are touching down in our fair District to ignite the dance floor with their own brand of elctro-rock therapy. Dance shoes, while encouraged, are not included.

For your chance at these tickets for the March 25 show, fly that Francophile flag and tell us what your favorite French hot spots are in the DMV and why.

Check back next week to see who won and for your chance at another set of tickets!

    Well, my favorite French hotspot is L’Auberge Chez Francois in Great Falls, VA.  Alsacian food doesn’t get any better in my opinion!  I’d loooove to go see Housse de Racket!  Hope I win!

    When the likes of Justice, Yann Tiersen or Housse de Racket are playing, my favorite French hotspot is THE 9:30 CLUB!!

  • Lotanna

    My favorite French hotspot is Bistro Du Coin in Dupont. Best French Onion soup I’ve ever had! (and an amazing selection of desserts, as well!) Seeing Housse de Racket perform would be AWESOME! :)

    Mon restaurant préféré à Washington DC est française La Chaumière à Georgetown. Mon préféré événement français sur le thème à Washington DC est la Grande Fête de la Francophonie à La Maison Française. Je voudrais aimer ces billets. Merci beaucoup!

    I swim, so my favorite French hot spot is the outdoor pool at the Bethesda Y.  In the summer, there are at least as many people speaking French as English.

    When I’m not totally cranky in the morning, I love catching breakfast at la Madeleine on Rockville Pike. Their lemonade is AMAZING. lol

    9:30 Club is great for French music. During the recent Coeur de Pirate concert I think French speakers outnumbered English. 

  • souflet – get in my belly

    I went to La Bergerie during restaurant week, it was deeelish! I also got to sit next to a snooty older couple who must have been dismayed at my youthful excuberance and lack of fancy-French-restaurant manners. I might even go back and pay full price just to raise some more eyebrows, and eat their Gran Marnier souflet, mmMM!

    Bistro Cacao has some freakishly amazing food!

    While not normally my vibe, Dupont and Georgetown offer the opportunity for quintessentially Parisian  flânerie, and the French-speaking resident crowds that make hearing French so normal, I forget I’m in DC…

  • Alisha Rodriquez

    En plus du Club 9:30, je pense que le meilleure endroit Francophone dans le DMV est ma maison, a cause du cuisine Francais fantastique que je preparez. Si vous me donnez les billets pour Housse de Racket, vous etes invites!

  • Travis

    PAUL! Yes I know it’s a chain but there sandwiches are closer than what I found in Paris than anything else in town.  And don’t forget about the eclairs!

  • Imported from DC

    Simply put.  L’Enfant Cafe in 18 st. For starters, they hold the best and only Bastille Day block party. I don’t know of any other French place that gets to close an entire city street to throw a party with French maid races included.  They also have what you (socialstudies) called the sexiest brunch in DC “La Boum” plus is the food is none of infusion crap, simply French traditional food very well made at decent prices.  This place really encompass the Cafe, food and party atmosphere of most places in Latin Quarter or Marais in Paris.
