Epicure’s main room has a PA system, mics, mic stands, a house drum kit, two house pianos, several house guitars, a house accordion, a house didgeridoo, and more. On the rooftop, we have a more limited PA system, since only acoustic acts are booked. Sets are 1-3 hours long with breaks, and music usually starts at 8pm. You are expected to be here at least 30 minutes in advance to set up.
We select featured bands and performers for our weekend nights not just based on how much we like the music, but also based on their expected draw in the Fairfax area. For this reason, bands that are visiting Epicure from out of town are mostly booked as featured acts during our Monday night open mics, or as an acoustic set on our rooftop stage Monday evenings. Also, if you are a new performer and are still working on building your audience, our Monday and/or Thursday open mic nights are a great place to start.
