Upcoming Fairfax City music venue and pub to hold weekend fundraiser

A new music venue and pub is holding a fundraiser, starting tomorrow (Friday), to support its upcoming launch in Fairfax City.

Earp’s Ordinary, located at 10420 Main Street, has been under construction since 2020, but encountered delays caused by the pandemic.

Now, owner Michael DeMarco says construction has been completed, but the venue still needs “funds for working capital to help with operating expenses like inventory.”

Previously, DeMarco told FFXnow he envisions the pub drawing national and regional talent. He also said the venue won’t focus on a specific music genre.

“There will be 25 musicians playing throughout the weekend — Friday evening, Saturday afternoon, Saturday evening, and Sunday afternoon,” Demarco said. “The goal is $50,000.”

Demolition for the venue began in 2020. To get through the pandemic, DeMarco and managing partner Josh Alexander hosted outdoor shows in front of the space. The site has previously been home to restaurants, a judicial center space and a duckpin bowling alley.

General admission tickets for the “Save Our Stage” fundraiser are available online for $25, though the Friday show has sold out. There are also $65 all-access weekend passes and exclusive VIP memberships available for purchase.

The event will feature a buffet and live music by a diverse set of artists, including Holly Montgomery, Rick Landers, Jillian Matundan, Paul Wolfe, Heather Lloyd, Susan Rowe, Michelle Swan, Brent Funkhouser, Kirk Hurd, Sunny at Midnight and Know1Else.

The bar operates on a credit/cash basis.

Earp’s Ordinary is also accepting online donations through the ticket page and via Venmo at @earpsordinary for those who can’t attend in-person.
