This year marks the 30th anniversary of Rock Fest in Cadott, Wisconsin and Lou Brutus returns as host! The 2024 edition in Cadott WI goes from Thursday July 18 to Saturday July 20 with a special bonus bash the night of Wednesday July 17. Lou says, “My concert calendar each year is centered on Rock Fest and I’m stoked to be back for the music and madness!”

This year features another fantastic lineup. It features Shinedown, Jelly Roll, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Chevelle, The Hu, Parkway Drive, Beartooth, 311, Killswitch Engage, Fever 333, Atreyu, From Ashes to New, Sevendust, Dirty Honey, Struggle Jennings, Austin Meade, Stabbing Westward, Saul, Ayron Jones, Lilian, Holy Wars, Another Day Dawns, Blue Felix, Kingdom Collapse, Ignescent, Silent Theory, Uncured, City of the Weak, Living Dead Girl, Sleep Theory, Upon A Burning Body, Citizen Soldier, Quiet Riot, Vince Neil, Psychostick, Shallow Side, and tons of others.

Brutus will definitely be doing another Meet & Greet this year and it will be open to all in attendance, but we won’t have details until we get closer to the festival. He’ll sign and take pictures for as long as his schedule allows. It’s safe to assume that copies of Lou’s book Sonic Warrior and perhaps some other LB merch will be available at the main merch store. However, you should keep in mind that everything available last year sold out very quickly. You will be allowed to bring other items with you to the show for him to sign, so to insure you get a book signed, bring it with you!

Since the dawn of time, men and women around the world have begged the music gods above for a dry goods emporium which sold items that featured the lovable mug of one Lou Brutus. We are happy to announce that their desperate pleas have been answered!

The Official Lou Brutus Merch Table is now open! It features t-shirts, hoodies, stickers, mugs, and anything else we can slap LB’s face on in the hope it will convince you to part with some of your hard-earned greenbacks. Shirt sizes up to XXXL. Just hit the MERCH tab to get to the store!

By request, we’ve also added copies of Lou’s book Sonic Warrior which have been signed by both he and Darla the Wonder Dog! What else would you to see sold? It doesn’t matter to us, so long as it convinces you to send us your money for it! Let us know your suggestions for the types of items you wanna see.



The holiday card for 2023 from Lou and Darla has been unveiled! Entitled Deck the Halls Over it pays homage to the classic album cover art of Rock and Roll Over from KISS. The card art was designed by the amazing Alan MacBain based on the original cover art by Michael Doret. It was chosen to pay tribute to The End of the Road Tour wrapping up over the holiday season.

The cards are limited to just five-hundred copies! However, to get one, you must give one! Send a card to Lou & Darla – PO Box 361 – Arnold MD 21012. You do NOT need to include self-addressed stamped envelope, just send a holiday card with your return address clearly visible.

UPDATE: There has been an overwhelming response to the card this year. The initial run of cards is now gone BUT there has been a second printing ordered of one-hundred. If you’ve sent a card already, we should have you covered. However, you may not see your return card until just before or just after Christmas itself. UPDATE: All cards are now completely gone. Thanks!


Check out the latest guitar picks from LB and Darla the Wonder Dog!

These are the first-ever guitar picks for Darla and Lou from InTune Guitar Picks. The artwork is a nod to the the “72 Seasons” album from Metallica. There’s a bass pick with a silhouette of Darla and a standard pick using Alan MacBain’s classic “Sonic Warrior” design of LB.

To get yours, simply send a self-addressed stamped envelope to Lou and Darla M72 – PO Box 361 – Arnold MD 21012. Of course, you can also get them direct from Lou at any of his public appearances including the Metallica show in Detroit MI on his birthday November 10th.


Shinedown, Papa Roach, and Spiritbox have teamed up for the Revolutions Live Tour. You can join Lou on a number of tour stops.

He’ll be there at Ram’s Head Live in Baltimore MD on September 10th for an off night from the full tour that will feature Papa Roach and Spiritbox. You can catch him as stage host for O.C. Bikefest in Ocean City MD with Shinedown and The Struts on September 15th. Brutus will also hit the full tour stop at Prudential Center in Newark NJ on September 24th.

Along with interviews and stage intros, Lou will be photographing full sets from the bands. If you see him, be sure to get one of the new M72 Metallica-style guitar picks done for he and Darla the Wonder Dog!
