Substance co-founder Brian Tarney says, “Over the years we have strived to create unique and atypical ranges, Substance 2022 is no exception. We take the do-it-yourself philosophy to heart. In the past, pandemics and outside forces have made presenting our unique vision all the more complex, but the stars have aligned and self-reliance reigns. This year we are able to showcase some of the most amazing acts on the scene. We intend to fully utilize our favorite theater in Los Angeles to the pinnacle of substance.”
