Kinda sketchy due to the fact that the only people I knew were in Late Ones (can't talk to them) and there was literally no one under 18 other than me. I am not sure if I would/could go there to a show again just because I was a little uncomfortable with the surrounding area when I went outside to chill. This Years Finest and Late Ones sounded good Mixtapes and Such Gold was playing, but I wasnt allowed to stay since I had school.
Why were you uncomfortable with the surrounding area? I don't think there's much foot or street traffic except for people going up st cats.

Because it seemed a little sketchy. I was also alone, and it was darker.

Things got fucked up again. Our lanlords got evicted from the mammoth by the fire marshal last night, this means that they'll want nelligan hall back. All the shows that are already booked are still happening but we're gonna have to find another place for all ages shows.
Thanks for everything

They left nelligan hall in a similar state, even with all work we put into the building I'm sure the fire marshal won't be too pleased when he comes knocking on the door and sees them living in a fire hazard again.

What's the word on chestnut coming back? I know some pretty serious plans have been made towards that.

Bank on it. The hanging romex alone would give them a fit, and for a room that size there needs to be a fire suppression system (more than a few fire extinguishers) installed most likely.

the only way a venue is going to survive is if someone thinks about all that stuff prior to opening. hindsight, i know, but we keep getting into these situations it seems.

It's all just part of all ages shows. Part of the game.

First off... Logan doesn't know what he's talking about.

Secondly, spreading rumors on the internet before to talking to someone who's phone numbr you have is... well, you pick the word.

We can't be evicted... as we own the warehouse. We have an up to par (regularly inspected) dry sprinkler system throughout the entire 90, 000 sf of building. From what I have been told, a temporary Romex line is acceptable... for a short period of time.

[soapbox]
So obviously it's not impossible for someone to pull a space together and run it responsibly. I understand the nature of the forum, but there's just a lot of talking here, which is why I keep my hands moving to make things happen (and stressful topics like this out of mind). I suggest that if people want more alternative spaces to be available that they roll up their sleeves and volunteer to help maintain what is generally taken for granted. My general experience is that people take more than they give to these kinds of places, which results in failure. Government feels it has a role to play in keeping people safe... so we play the game. How are each of us helping to make sure that what we have now is sustainable? [/soapbox]

So, in short, we have a lot of work to do (which is ALL we do) to appease authority... which is what we always expected, just didn't spring for. But rest assured, the Mammoth ain't gone, or going away. Word.

By the way, I have a meeting with the mayor on Friday to discuss city gov's interest in helping artists somehow and they want suggestions abour artist neighborhoods, colonies (hate that word), zones, spaces etc. I'll be sure to mention how the city loves to brag about its geat arts and culture, but does very little to help navigate through the roadblocks it puts up. There is nearly nothing on that level to help spark creativity in this town. Wet Blanket City.

Just to be clear, this was about Nelligan Hall.

As for the Mammoth, it's good to hear that it isn't done at all. I didn't remember seeing any fire suppression system, but if you say it's there, I trust in that Aron. My bad. I have only been there once and it was after dark, with few lights on inside. There were tons of wires out (after going back and looking at my photos), I thought the Marshall had a shit fit about that at other venues, but if they're OK with it being temporary, that's something else completely.

I'd give a finger to have Chestnut fully operational again.

Gotcha Bryan. I didn't mean to get so defensive about it... I'm a little miffed about this being on the internet immediately upon explaining the situation to a 3rd party, which I requested be kept under their hat. Nelligan Hall is a mess, no doubt, and fixing it up as soon as possible is a priority.

Chestnut isn't back, or at least anytime soon, but we are having a show there soon enough.

This is awesome, I hopefully that went over well. You should see if they can get some heat off chestnut. I know I'm willing to roll my sleeves up to keep it around.
