After Losing Its First Location, Electronic Music Venue S1 Is Still Fighting for Underground and Underrepresented Artists
While other nonprofit arts spaces struggle to stay afloat, S1 has lasted four years. This weekend, it’s celebrating by hosting a series of performances and workshops. The anniversary also marks almost a year that S1 has been at its new location, squeezed in between a dive bar and vape shop on Northeast Sandy Boulevard and 73rd Avenue. Last spring, S1 was forced to move out of it Hollywood District basement due to tighter fire-code regulations put in place after the Ghost Ship warehouse fire in Oakland, which killed dozens of people.
