Some dude had an absolutely gorgeous loft and hosted a Sofar Sounds event there that I remember included Larkin Poe who seem to be pretty massive now (they were fairly large at that time too).

It's also a terrible organization that underpays its artists in return for tech bro seed funding. Wouldn't support them without massive changes at this point.

I like it!
