More than 30 people died in an Oakland warehouse fire Friday, Dec. 3, including Alameda native and Alameda High School graduate, Johnny Igaz. Johnny was a DJ who used the name “Nackt.” He was at the warehouse playing his music in between sets of live music.
In 2014 Chor Ng leased a warehouse he owns on 31st Avenue in Oakland to Derick Ion Almena. The new landlord had a plan to create an artists’ colony within the space. Attracted by the inexpensive rent and the camaraderie, performers, musicians and singers arrived and began living in the warehouse.
