New Orleans musicians host Ghost Ship benefit shows


Thirty-six people died following a fire at the artist collective warehouse Ghost Ship in Oakland, California during a performance Dec. 2, 2016. The live-work space was a nucleus for a vibrant arts scene in an increasingly unaffordable Bay Area, and the tragedy sparked a national debate over similar DIY spaces across the U.S., which Oakland Mayor*Libby Schaaf described Jan. 11 as now being under "heightened scrutiny" in a protective executive order, putting previously underground spaces for largely marginalized groups under a bureaucratic microscope that could end up punishing the people relying on them ? in the name of "safety and permits" ? rather than making spaces more accessible.

New Orleans' web of DIY venues ? including house shows and generator-powered shows, the back rooms in coffee shops and small theaters and gutted warehouses ? is supported by a diverse range of artists, promoters and bookers.*This weekend, a dozen New Orleans artists will perform at two shows with proceeds benefiting relief efforts supporting victims and families of the fire.
