Recap: Red Bull Music Academy Presents Friends of Friends Five Year Anniversary Party

1:59 PM PDT on September 11, 2014


Groundislava (pictured above), Deru, Nadastrom, Salva, Kurupt, B Bravo, Jen Ferrer, Different Sleep B2B Jerome LOL, and Gaslamp Killer entertained a packed house from 10 until the lights came on at 2 in a former bank vault in Downtown Los Angeles. Hundreds of scenesters, music geeks, beautiful people, and assorted friends of friends clustered in two rooms to celebrate the genius of Leeor Brown's Friends of Friends Records, a cultural force in Los Angeles for five years that has brought groundbreaking music from L.A. to the world, and vice-versa. At one point in the smaller room, a group of ladies surrounded Kurupt on the dancefloor as Jerome spun an instrumental version of "Ain't No Fun". In other words, it was a party...


The event was the third out of four “This City Belongs To Me” event series curated by Red Bull. Dubbed 5oFoF, the celebration was really a chance for people who love music in L.A. to salute one of their own. Big ups to everyone involved and here's to 5 more years...
