Thanks Ashley! We will continue to look for a space and soon hold bi-monthly public meetings to update, get ideas and make it happen using the passion and resources of the MANY supporters like yourself.
The most important bit is finding the location that is suitable for the Living Room needs. As we all know too well, SB is very expensive (per sq ft & otherwise) and since we won't be "selling" anything to make up the cost (booze), it's imperative we find a subsidized space so the club can be financially sustainable for years to come. It will happen. I'm sure we could find a Steve Jobs quote for inspiration, but we learned a lot from this process and we ain't going anywhere. We will be respectful but persistent to ensure the SB regional youth have something rad to do on the weekends + our local artists have a cool, safe and (affordable) place to perform live music. Much love and thank you again for the support.
We really want to make this a permanent SB/Goleta venue and not hop around from place to place. A true hub for music and the community. Stay tuned and sign up at www.thelivingroomclub.org for updates and for meeting times.

You are totally correct Dou4now... That is what made this particular space rad. It was offerred rent free by Marborg. That said, even if we have to raise the money and lease something, we will do our best. We are new to the non profit world and not as well endowed as the big boys/girls, but we think it's too good a plan & we truly hope those with the ability to assist financially will do so. We are ready to execute. We shall see. Thanks for the comment.

We can't explain how thankful and appreciative we are of Marborg Industries, DesignArc and Brownstein Hyatt Farber and Schreck, the SB Bowl Foundation Ed Outreach and the community at large. Together they helped NNMF put together an amazing proposal/presentation. Literally months of planning and years of searching for a suitable space were lost yesterday, but we are confident with the support of the community, local foundations and individual grants, we will find another spot and re-open the Living Room in a way that can be sustained.
The new Living Room will be not only a space to see amazing local/touring live music, but also a vocational workshop space where we will offer classes to those in the community who want to learn about recording, live production and how to run a show.
Sign up for our e mail list at www.thelivingroomclub.org and stay tuned. If you'd like to donate, there is a button there too. We won't give up until we see this resource alive and sustainable again.
BUT- we need your help both financially (tax deductible) and by calling your local government official and letting them know you support and want them to assist the Living Room project. Once we identify a new potential space, we will also be asking for your physical strength, positivity and expertise.
It will be fun. It will be worth it. It will be a long lasting community benefit that will change the lives of THOUSANDS of young people, musicians and music lovers. I know that it changed mine and Allan's.
VIVA LA MUSIC.
