On Dec. 2, 36 people were killed when a fire broke out during an electronic music show in a warehouse known as the Ghost Ship in Oakland’s Fruitvale neighborhood.
Oakland’s arts and music community rallied in the wake of the tragedy, hosting benefits for families who lost loved ones, as well as attempting to protect other live-work spaces in a city with skyrocketing rents.
Featuring interviews with Jason Urbina, Brendan Tidd, and Daniel Guardado.
