VENUE: Located off the beaten path, at the end of a residential cul-de-sac in the Richmond District, the copper-domed, Neo-Classical columbarium is a hidden gem & an architectural wonder. The structure features a large rotunda, mosaic tile floors, ornate stained-glass windows & a domed skylight. A colossal 45-foot atrium is surrounded by intricate balconies, with each of the 4 floors providing a glimpse into San Francisco’s history. Big thanks to Bobby Jo Valentine for the idea & to Brian Kestenblatt for the space!

OPEN MIC: Sign-ups will be the night of & the list fills up quickly, so if you want to share, arrive early. If you’re going to perform, please keep it under 5 MINUTES. If you feel compelled to, share whatever you want, but you don't have to perform anything at all - the audience is as essential as the performers.

PARKING: There is a parking lot, but space is limited. Public transportation is recommended.

COMFORT: The space was built in the late 1800s, so there is no heat, but a limited number of blankets will be available for use. Dress warmly!

The Camp Fire is the deadliest & most destructive wildfire in California history. It is also the deadliest wildfire in the United States, as well as the seventh-deadliest U.S. wildfire overall. Named after Camp Creek Road, its place of origin, the fire started on November 8, 2018, in Butte County, in Northern California. The fire has caused 77 civilian fatalities, injured 12 civilians & five firefighters, covered an area of about 140,000 acres, & destroyed 11,862 structures, including 9,700 single-family homes & 118 apartment buildings, with most of the damage occurring within the first two days.

The fire forced the evacuation of Paradise, Magalia, Centerville, Concow, Pulga, Butte Creek Canyon, & Yankee Hill & threatened the communities of Butte Valley, Chico, Forest Ranch, Helltown, Inskip, Oroville, & Stirling City. Within the first day, the fire essentially destroyed the community of Concow & the town of Paradise, incinerating homes, businesses, churches, a hospital, schools, & a rest home.
