Tickets are $25 and all proceeds will go to the Be Loud! Sophie Foundation. Be Loud ’23 is an all ages show.

We’ve had such an extraordinary run of Be Loud! concerts and we are celebrating that by hosting our 10th and final one (for the foreseeable future) on August 26th.

Don’t worry, we are going to host other awesome fundraising events, and in the meantime, we plan to go out big and LOUD with Be Loud! 23.

As with our last two shows in ’21 (The Clash) and ’22 (The Ramones, The Cure, and ZZ Top), we’ve asked some of our favorite local musicians to cover truly influential acts of the 1980’s. This year we have our old friends Preeesh! taking on Echo & The Bunnymen before The Maxell 90 does a tribute to the one and only R.E.M.

Preeesh! features a core band comprised of Rob Ladd, Robert Sledge, and John Plymale, who many know from their previous bands The Pressure Boys, Ben Folds Five, and The Sex Police. Look for special guests too!

The Maxell 90 will feature over 20 musicians teaming up to play tribute to R.E.M., including many you’ll recognize from Dillon Fence, The Connells, and Collapsis. Guest singers and special guests will be featured throughout the set.

It promises to be an incredible evening of music and community, with all proceeds going to support the Be Loud! Sophie Foundation and the amazing work of the UNC AYA team at UNC Hospitals. Get your tickets now…before they’re gone!

The show will also be live streamed! If you can’t make it to Cat’s Cradle, we will miss you but you can still tune in on Facebook and YouTube.
