The Lost Church Fosters the Arts in Intimate San Francisco Spaces

The Lost Church is a non-profit located on Capp Street in the Mission District of San Francisco; with a location opening in Santa Rosa very soon. It’s run by a group of artists and industry professionals whose mission is simple, yet robust:

“We create, sustain, and defend spaces for live performance.”


In the current climate (where increasing rents are pushing out event spaces), this is the type of organization that helps foster a vibrant San Francisco scene. Their specialty is working with local & touring artists who regularly perform in smaller, more intimate spaces. The Lost Church has staged eight original live musicals and a plethora of other events, including film screenings, book readings, magic shows, local bands and comedy nights.

If you’re looking for something different to do, why not check out a show at The Lost Church. You might be pleasantly surprised at what you find and you’ll also be supporting live music in San Francisco – a win-win.

In the next few weeks, you could see a songwriter-in-the-round featuring Bay Area talents Elaine Ryan, Socorra, and Avery Bazan, the recurring SHHongwriters open mic put on by KC Turner presents, a queer folk punk show, multi-faceted folk and Americana from Willa Mamet and Kate Burkart, and modern-day roots music.
