This Local Venue Survived Covid, but It Couldn’t Survive Crushing Debts

SF Standard article by Sarah Hertz

Farewell PianoFight — there’s a huge hole in our community now.

Wishing everyone at PF all the best for their next ventures.

PianoFight Article from SF Standard

When Covid started, Rob Ready was staring down a live entertainment apocalypse and, potentially, the demise of his creative community. 

“It sucked,” said Ready, the co-founder and artistic director of PianoFight, an independent arts venue with locations in the Tenderloin and Downtown Oakland that centers local visual and performing artists. “And it’s been touch-and-go for the past three years.”

The theater quickly organized an online fundraiser that brought in $50,000—enough to keep staff on the payroll until they could sign up for unemployment. Unfortunately for PianoFight, it was merely the first act in a three-year saga that is about to end on a tragic note. The venue will permanently shutter on March 18. PianoFight’s closure is only the latest in a long line of Covid casualties. On March 18, 2020, Boz Scaggs informed his staff that Slim’s final days would be cut short—the musician and owner had privately decided to close his nightclub in the South of Market (SoMa) neighborhood in late 2019. Two months later, the Saddle Rack, a beloved honky-tonk in Fremont (originally in San Jose) also shuttered for good.    The fall of 2020 ushered in more closures. The Uptown Nightclub in Oakland called it quits. The Stud—San Francisco’s longest-running queer bar—remains in a holding pattern to this day, as its ownership collective searches for a new home. The future of countless live performance venues appeared to be hanging in the balance.  

Necessity Is the Mother of Invention

D’Arcy Drollinger, a drag performer and the owner of SoMa club Oasis, quickly dreamed up creative ways to keep his business afloat, launching “Meals on Heels,” a delivery service where drag performers provided dinner and a show from the safety of the curbside.    “It wasn’t a huge money maker, but we were able to bring sparkle into people’s lives and employ some drag performers,” Drollinger said. 

When Covid’s one-year mark rolled around, and Oasis hadn’t yet received a relief grant from the local or federal government, Drollinger said he realized he had spent all of his savings and…

Ticket Sales Alone Don't Keep Theaters Open...Donors Do

From Your Ever Lovin’ Editor

Hello friends,

This week at TLC San Francisco and TLC Santa Rosa is another example of the fun mix of genres and performance types we have the good fortune to host!

We’re thrilled to present each and every one of these showcases and hope that you’ll take a chance and see something new to light up your world.

We’re sad that we all had to say goodbye to the awesome PianoFight this month. We and other local theaters and venues will soon present some of the fantastic performers who once called PianoFight their home, but our community will never be the same.

We’ve lost so many performance spaces and clubs recently. It’s daunting to keep our chins up and push onward, but with the support of our Anchor Donors, Audience Members, and Bulletin readers like you — we’re optimistic and flat out excited for the future of TLC.
