Many times in our lives we see tragedies happen through a screen, and it might sadden us, or make us feel something, but it doesn't cut deep until your own life is actually affected in some way...
This weekend a fire at a warehouse party in Oakland took the lives of 33 people... and its always just news up until you see a name you recognize...
We have been offered opportunites to do shows in warehouses just like this...single entry and exit, no fire alarms or extinguishers, full of flammable material...and you never realize the extent of what could actually happen in a worst case scenario situation.
This event opened my eyes a lot to the dangers of what can happen, even when its just a harmless party and everyone is doing nothing but enjoying themselves.
A lot of amazing people lost their lives, and a lot of more will be hurt or traumatized for the rest of their lives, So i send my love to everyone affected in anyway by this tragedy...because I know i was
This hit too close to home...
