Things you should know:

1. It’s Vancouver’s only club built for sound, boasting a $250,000 sound system, one of the biggest in North America.

2. Shepard Fairey has an amazing 60 ft installation going all the way up the stairs (the widest he’s ever made).

3. My friend Kenta Goto (Brknhome) and Rick Klotz (Freshjive) are designing crazy private rooms at the back of the club.

4. There will be a Booooooom party here in the future.

See photos below.

Fortune Sound Club has been open for the past couple weeks unofficially, and it really is one of the few fun clubs in town (that’s me in the red waiting for Keys N Krates to start).

Hope to see you there Wednesday! (It’s gonna be CRAZY!)
