And what is Nonplussed Fest?
Nonplussed Fest was launched in 2016 by the folks at Non Plus Ultra, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Los Angeles. Non Plus Ultra began as an art space in September 2014, and has hosted intimate underground live music shows with bands including BODY/HEAD/GATE, Thee Oh Sees, Black Dice, Vinyl Williams, HOTT MT and many more. In March of 2017 in the wake of a city-wide crackdown on DIY spaces, the venue was forced to discontinue live music events. It continues to operate as a multi-use recording, filming, rehearsal, and creative work space. The second edition of Nonplussed Fest in July of 2017 will take place in a separate venue - Zebulon LA in Frogtown - but will continue to celebrate and reaffirm the importance of DIY creative endeavors and of Non Plus Ultra's mission to support emerging artists.
This year, Nonplussed Fest is taking place at Zebulon Concert Cafe in Frogtown, Los Angeles. Director Michael Grodner and special guests will be in attendance for the screening.
