Let the high-energy sounds of drum and bass infect your brain every Thursday night at Respect, LA's long-running weekly that takes place at Dragonfly in Hollywood.


May 29 2014

Respect deserves ours. With a dedicated fan base and new headliners every week, this club night represents the heart of the drum and bass community in Los Angeles. Super heavy bass, high-octane drums and soul-shaking sound create an energetic environment, which is lapped up by the crowd of music fans every Thursday night in Hollywood.

Drum and bass dominates at Respect, LA's weekly club night that has showcased the genre for a decade and a half. Taking place every Thursday night at Dragonfly in Hollywood, Respect earns its title with an always-fresh roster of headliners from the US, UK and beyond. You’ll also hear up-and-coming producers and performers, including MCs that stay true to the roots of the dark, gritty sound. Along with drum and bass, you’ll encounter variations on heavy bass music, such as breaks, grime, dubstep and other mutant offspring. Respect is a cozy community night with great vibes and an underground feel. There's never a dress code, but there might be a mosh pit - so come correct. The 21+ club night is hosted by Junglist Platoon, and residents of Respect include hard hitters Machete, Scooba, Clutch, Noface, Drone, MC XYZ, Gil Konspiracy and Justin Ford. Cover is only $10, except in the case of special events, when two rooms of music are opened up. You can purchase advance tickets for priority entry online, and you’ll find $4 beers before 11PM. Dragonfly is a dive bar in the heart of Hollywood, a no-frills space with multiple bars and an outdoor patio – the perfect setting for dirty, filthy, drum and bass.

Respect is the longest-running drum and bass weekly in Los Angeles, and has been around in some form or fashion since 1999. The club night was previously held at Jimmy’s Lounge, the Echoplex and several other local venues during its 15 years of existenc

It's Hollywood, and street parking is notoriously hard to find. Beware parking on the side/residential streets - read signs very carefully to make sure you've found a legal spot before you park your car. Otherwise, just ante up for valet at the Dragonfly

A club that has kept its cool for over two decades, The Dragonfly in Hollywood is a casual nightclub/dive with a variety of music, underground atmosphere and dark party vibe.
