It Won't Last Forever...

...or maybe it will

Sound and Fury 2017. June 9 & 10 DTLA

"We weave webs of meaning that we justify in ontological ways and through language. The more string, the more opportunity for confusion. This weekend offered the pleasure of seeing many people vibrate on the same frequency. I love everyone."

-Jeff Caffey
Angel Du$t, Odd Man Out, Gag

We've tried hard to come up with words to describe just how beautiful the weekend was, but have had a difficult time. Those words above put it better than we could've.

Sound and Fury 2017 has come and gone. We will post some videos here and on our YouTube (subscribe), and some pictures on our Instagram. Thank you to all who participated, be it as an attendee, band member, staff, or crew.

SEE YOU IN 2018!!!

Sound and Fury 2017. June 9 & 10 DTLA

ALRIGHT! This time we have something a lil bit different for you. A list of Country bangers from Josiah... Subscribe on Spotify Here!

PLAYLIST - Listen Now


1. PATSY CLINE Walkin’ After Midnight

If you listen to this song and don’t feel something – I really just don’t know what to tell you.

2. HANK WILLIAMS Won’t You Sometimes Think of Me

A straight up desperate song from a dude whose girl bailed on him accompanied with an insanely catchy vocal melody. Makes you wanna put a toaster in the bathtub in the best way possible.

3. ERNEST TUBB Thanks a Lot

On the more “Texas Swing” side of country songs. I love a sarcastic chorus “Thanks, thanks a –lot. I’ve got a broken heart, that’s I’ll I’ve got.”

4. BUCK OWENS Made in Japan

Put a pretty-ass oriental sounding guitar riff behind a country song about loving a Japanese girl in a planned marriage and you’ve got yourself a song so nice it’ll make you wanna dance & die at the same time!

5. MARTY ROBBINS They’re Hanging Me Tonight

Think of a “My War” era Black Flag song made into country track. Loving someone so much you feel like you gotta put a bullet in em.

6. FARON YOUNG Live Fast, Love Hard, Die Young

Dude definitely lived by his motto by blowing his brains out. But before he did that, he released this banger among a whole catalogue of bangers. He influenced many country staples like Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, etc.

7. LEFTY FRIZZEL If You’ve Got the Money I’ve Got the Time

A heater for all of the broke-asses out there. “Bring along your Cadillac, leave my old wreck behind. If you’ve got the money honey, I’ve got the time.”

8. GEORGE STRAIT Blue Clear Sky

I’m hard to please with most country released past the 80’s. But this is a certified, Grade A ass-beater of a track from the melody to the lyrics.

9. DWIGHT YOAKAM Please, Please Baby

Dude is Buck Owen’s protégé and he was in Sling Blade - what more do you need? Writes catchy Elvis-esque rock n’ roll country tracks. This one is his best.

10. CHUCK BERRY Memphis, Tennesee

You can make the argument that Chuck Berry is just straight up Rock N’ Roll. But you’d just be wrong, so here’s the best track he ever wrote.

PLAYLIST - Listen Now


1. SHEER MAG Just Can't Get Enough

Sheer mag might be the coolest band playing rock music in current time. Rent a van and follow them around on tour

2. KING NINE The Art of War

King Nine is my favorite heavy music band in the world. They need to hurry the fuck up and release an LP

3. RAMONES Pet Sematary

This is the song that made me fall in love with the Ramones when I was a dumb ass little kid. If you can't relate you obviously hate guitars and music

4. FIREWALKER Barking Up the Wrong Tree

This Firewalker track is most everything I want in a hardcore song, played by a band that doesn't sound like any other hardcore band

5. TONY MOLINA See Me Fall

Tony Molina lyrically pulls at your heart strings before he stomps a shit hole in your ass with the baddest acoustic guitar riff on "See Me Fall"

6. JOY DIVISION Disorder

This is the recording that made me fall in love with Joy Division when I was a dumb ass little kid. I thought this band was bad cool guy music for people who broke edge. Hearing these songs played with a live edge made me appreciate how energetic and even angry it actually is

7. THE STOOGES Search and Destroy

Iggy and The Stooges are the greatest rock band of all time. Don't fucking @ me

8. WIRE Ex Lion Tamer

I can't believe the pop sensibility and self awareness Wire had specifically in the era. Pink Flag might be a perfect record

9. NEGATIVE APPROACH Dead Stop

"Dead Stop" is a cool example of great song writing from a band that already proved they could straight up bash your little ass nuts 100 times over. Negative Approach has a dope legacy

10. NEIL YOUNG My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)

Neil Young accurately describes all my truest feelings about rock n roll music over the saddest, hooky anthem. "Rock n Roll can never die". Thanks, Neil

PLAYLIST - Listen Now


1. MERAUDER Downfall of Christ

Crushing riffs pummeling you while you’re being told there’s no one out there to save you and it’s your fault. Merauder may be the hardest band ever.

2. RAMPAGE Goin’ Ape

Classic NYHC sound with an early crossover influence and the unique lyrical stylings of Josh P. earns Rampage a special place in my heart. “We ain’t gonna win, but ain’t gonna quit.”

3. DAY BY DAY Separate Myself

I first saw Day By Day before ever hearing them and it felt like watching a Cold As Life or Madball video from the 90s. South Florida Hardcore doing it right.

4. BIG CONTEST What Will You Do?

There’s a driving energy to Big Contest that reminds me of early NY bands like Antidote and Agnostic Front and makes their songs very memorable.

5. BIOHAZARD Victory

“Biohazard from Brooklyn, New York in your face!" There’s not much else you really need to say.

6. UNIFIED RIGHT Joke After Joke

There’s something about a cool drum fill at the beginning of a song that gives it extra power. The vocal delivery stands out and begs the question “Tell me, please tell me when was your last sincere thought?”

7. RIXE Rixe

Hard and fast Oi from Paris. I have no clue what they’re saying.

8. LOWER SPECIES Waste

Lower Species is a band that got my attention right away because I could feel the Breakdown influence down to my bones. I’m looking forward to them releasing new material.

9. MIL-SPEC Hall of Mirrors

There’s a lot of substance in a band like Mil-Spec that pulls me in. The song questions what’s in store for us outside of our friends and material possessions in the format of bouncy mosh parts.

10. CROWN COURT Disco Nightmare

This feels like you’re stepping back into 1982. Catchy Oi riffs and lyrics talking about working-class life in London. Highly recommended.

11. CROWN OF THORNZ Icepick

It’s hard to pick what makes Crown of Thornz so great. Is it Mike Dijan’s skills on guitar or Ezec’s lyrics and delivery? All I know is that it could never be recreated.

12. KING NINE The Art of War

No gimmicks, no posturing, just pure insanity. King Nine is one of those bands who aren’t trying to duplicate an older band’s sound, they forge their own path instead.

13. 86 MENTALITY Blood Red Violence

An entire song about beating ass. The drums are slow and driving, a perfect match to the lyrics. True definition of hard, no fake tough bullshit.

14. FURY In Extremis

Fury has cemented their place in today’s hardcore, and I think songs like “In Extremis” show why. I hear bands like Turning Point and Inside Out in their music, all without being too derivative. They embody the spirit of Orange County Hardcore.

things you should know

What Do I Get With My Weekend Pass?

Besides the weekend of your life, you will receive the following:

-Rad cloth wristband that is not uncomfortable like those plastic jawnts.
-Unlimited Photo Booth prints (be courteous tho)
-20% off at Donut Friend all weekend
-In's & Out's until at least 7pm (fest only goes until 10pm each night)

How Do I Add Aftershows to my Pass?

Email us at hey@soundandfury.la and let us know which shows you want to add on! Include your name, Email Address, and ticket status. For a full list of aftershows, go to soundandfury.la/presents.

Tell Me About Parking!

There are THREE paid parking lots directly across the street from the venue. As the fest nears, we will provide a map. Rest assured, there are plenty of places to park your car.

Where Should I Fly Into? Where Should I Rent My Car From?

LAX, Burbank, & LGB (Long Beach) work well to fly into. Kayak seems to have a good search engine for flights, and I've found AutoSlash to have great Rental Car prices.

Where Should I Stay?

Hotels.com currently shows the following deals:

Stillwell Hotel - $115/night - 0.6 miles from The Regent
Metro Plaza Hotel - $129/night - 1 mile from The Regent
City Center Hotel - $88/night - 1.1 miles from The Regent

AirBnB is always worth a look, too. Here's a link with the address of The Regent (448 S. Main St., LA, CA 90013) punched in.

How Can I Take Public Transportation to Sound and Fury?

Pershing Square, which runs the Red & Purple rail lines is located less than a half-a-mile from the venue. These trains now run until 2am on Fridays and Saturdays!

What is the Food & Water Situation? Is Water Going to be FREE Again?

Water will be FREE in jugs that we will keep filled as often as possible, and available from the bar in bottles for $2

Prufrock Pizzeria is attached to The Regent with vegan options. In addition to that there's a classy lil bar attached to the venue.
Guisados DTLA is 0.2 miles away and has vegetarian and Vegan taco options and open til . Must try if you're not from the area. I went there after both Friday & Saturday in 2016.
Ramen Hood has Vegan Ramen 0.3 miles from the venue, at Grand Central Market and is open 'til 3:30p, then re-opens from 6-10p Thursday - Friday

We will have an EXTENSIVE list of eateries both vegan and non before the fest.

Can We Go In & Out of the Venue? (aka Where Can I Store My Merch?)

To the great delight of all, YES we will be allowing In's & Out's until 7pm (show will end by 10pm each day)

But Will There Be A Photo Booth Upstairs Again?!?!?!?!

We will have a Photo Booth on the premises once again, so you can make sure to take a picture with your current best friend, favorite band, and future exes

TICKET/PASS QUESTIONS!

Do I need to change the name on the ticket if I bought or sold it?

Short answer: No
Long Answer: No, but if there are Aftershow passes that you need to pickup, they'll be under the name of the person who bought the ticket UNLESS the person who sells it emails us to change it. So here's a good primer:

Just a weekend pass: Dont change it
Weekend pass with Aftershows: It'll be easier for you if the person who bought it originally tells us who they sold it to

Where do I pick up my aftershow passes?

at the Shop Shogun table!

if you have any other questions, please reach out to us via email: hey@soundandfury.la!

Sound and Fury 2017. June 9 & 10 DTLA

You can email us here: hey@soundandfury.la and we will get back to you ASAP.

Lodging

So before we get started, the address of the Regent is 448 S. Main St., Los Angeles, CA. The Pershing Square station is the closest rail line, and serves the Red and Purple lines. We will tell you got to get there from various points of the city soon. You may have your own favorite methods or sites. I am using Hotels.com these days, but if you use something better....email us.

ok we have been asked for some lodging recommendations. I'm gonna start with what I would consider "value" hotels near the venue:

Miyako Hotel
Less than than a mile from The Regent, goes for about 180-190/night

O Hotel
this spot looks boutique-y. 190ish a night, and about a mile from The Regent

Metro Plaza
pure value. 1.2 miles from the venue, necessities, decent reviews.

Here's a ballerish hotel thats a tad over $200 a night and has a lot of LA History:

Millennium Biltmore
You can wiki it here. I actually stayed here once and it's rad. Less than a mile from the venue.

...and you know there's alllways dope AirBnB spots.
