S.O.B.’s, also known as Sounds of Brazil, is a legendary live music venue. It was opened by owner and director Larry Gold in June 1982. Gold opened the venue with the purpose of exposing the musical wealth and heritage of the Afro-Latino Diaspora to as many people as possible. True to its mission, it has become renowned as the premiere venue not only for World Music, but all genres, in New York City and the world over.

Latin legends like Tito Puente, Marc Anthony, Celia Cruz and Eddie Palmieri were some of the first to hit the stage, but contemporary superstars like Drake, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Jill Scott, Justin Timberlake, Cardi B and more have all graced the S.O.B.’s stage. Outside of Latin, Hip-Hop, Haitian, Caribbean, and world music, S.O.B.’s has also consistently booked alternative acts like Boy Pablo, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and Icon for Hire.
