Dan Vado, owner of comics and local music hub SLG Art Boutiki, announce that his shop and local music venue will move from its longtime home in the SoFA District to a new location near the Alameda, across from Mexico Lindo, next to Freebirds.
A select few who have the new location at at 44 Race Stree are excited for the potential to host live music, an issue that Vado was concerned with when he announced SLG would have to move from its current SoFA District location. Though no longer positioned in downtown San Jose to gain foot traffic from South First Fridays the new location is surrounded by businesses that complement the interests of people who already frequent SLG, such as The Usuals, Black & Brown, Current Tattooing and more.
The new location could host shows at the front of the venue spaces and the back area has potential green rooms, storage space, a kitchen, and load-in-load out areas, but Vado is holding off on discussing details until he gets closer to moving and reopening at the new location.
The current Art Boutiki on Market Street has two final shows on March 15th and the 16th (details TBA) before the move.
