Village Voice's Description

SOB's (Sounds of Brazil) opened in 1982 and has proven a blessing to the city's lovers of salsa, samba, reggae, Latin alternative, hip-hop, and more. The attractive space offers weekly parties with DJs and regular shows featuring some of the best musical acts and turntablists from varying countries, as well as locals and other Stateside musicians. The dance floor isn't of immense proportions but makes up for it in intensity. The empañadas and Brazilian pastries are top-shelf, as are the caiprihinas and mojitos.

Tips from foursquare

  • Brisk on 11/09/10

    "But by the "Black Album" I was blacking out,Partyin' S.O.B.'s and we had packed a crowd" - Kanye West "Last Call" Sourced from rapgenius.com.

  • ROC4LIFE on 05/14/10

    The best place in town to see live shows. Food and drinks are good!

  • Dee Phunk on 03/01/11

    Shows can be hit or miss here depending on if the sound feels like behaving or not. No longer one of the BEST live venues in the city but still historic & legendary. STILL supporting hip-hop.

  • TicketWeb on 07/21/11

    It's definitely the music that puts this on the top our list - SOBs never goes wrong. Everything else about the venue is great! Don't grab a table b/c they're to the side. Stick to the front row!
