I heard the LA Fort was shut down due to "permitting issues", have you heard if and when that venue will reopen in the near future?


I'm looking into it--I'll post back here with the answer.


This is what L.A. Fort posted on their facebook page February 4. Thanks to Greg (@gkla) from LA Font for the info:

"We are sorry to say that last night LAPD vice department came to The Fort and shut us down for a lack of proper permitting. We are starting the process of becoming a legal space but with the longevity of this social experiment in mind, we will be canceling all foreseeable future events. During this trying time, we are calling on our community now more than ever. This is the real test of the DIT (do it together) movement. Over the past 4 months we have all been witness to the power of this movement. Moving forward, The Fort will need all of us together to help fundraising, building, planning, and getting up to code. We hope you will be joining us on this process in the coming months as we take this journey together.

This is not the end but the very beginning~ If you are interested in being a part of this transition (even if you don't know how) please be in touch.

Thank you all!"
