Livestream Fundraiser for SOhO on October 8
"...Concerts small and large are effectively banned in most places, and there’s no clear sign of when they’ll return. 

To help their survival, Pete Muller — a math whiz, hedge fund manager, and musician who lives in Santa Barbara — founded the Live Music Society, which is doling out grants of $10,000-$50,000 across the country to venues that have capacities of fewer than 250 people. The society is also producing a series of short documentaries about these culturally critical locations called Empty Spaces, the first of which features our city’s very own SOhO Restaurant & Music Club.

As a fundraiser for SOhO, the Live Music Society and Santa Barbara Independent are partnering to livestream “Empty Spaces: SOhO” via the newspaper’s Facebook page on October 8 at 6 p.m. During the screening, viewers can donate directly to SOhO or, for a deductible write-off, through the Live Music Society.
