Just to bring it to people's attention, here's Christian Kiefer's query about the Loft:
Gallo is a spooky motherfucker, that's for sure, but Buffalo 66 is a terrific movie.Meanwhile, I'd like to explore the idea of writing something about the Loft: Maybe something long. Wanted to know if you Lofters would be willing to talk to me or if you think of me irreversably as the enemy / idiot / j.o. / asshole. I'm not sure if "irreversably" is spelled correctly so you can add "bad speller" to that list as well.I figure how that the Loft is over it can be safely embalmed. I'm kidding (kind of). I've heard it called the important "venue" in Sacramento ever but it's history is untold. Thing is: I don't know any of the Loft people and in fact most of the people I talk to know about it but seemingly few have first hand experience. I know some (most or all) of you here have and do, so I'm asking: Can we talk about it?
If anyone wants to lead him down the path for this article, I'm sure it's easy to get his email off of the News and Review web page. I went to the Loft alot for shows but I wasn't really that involved and I never staffed the Hindenburg or anything. I guess he should get in touch with Soriano.
