Re: “'I Genuinely Thought I Was Going To Die': Reddit User Describes Terrifying Escape From Oakland Warehouse Fire

I think the reason artists in the Bay Area live in "death traps" such as this is because rents are unreasonably high. And the reason they perform and party in "death traps" such as this is because there aren't many economical venues to perform in (if you play underground music).

For some of us, these scenes, that support unusual music, art, and creativity, represent the epitome of why we want to live in the Bay Area.

This is a tragedy. But shutting down artist space is not going to solve the fundamental problem - high rent - limited support for the Arts. If we want to keep the Bay Area underground Arts scenes viable, we need to publicly support housing and performance space for musicians, artists, and other creative types to do their work.
