Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg held the first of three State of the City addresses Aug. 21, discussing how the city can take a more entrepreneurial approach to live performances and activate underutilized spaces in Sacramento’s commercial corridors.

“We are a proud, increasingly diverse city, but the music scene still looks like the old days of the jazz jubilee,” Steinberg said, speaking from a vacant building across the street from Downtown Commons.

Eighty-six percent of Sacramento musicians reported four or fewer opportunities a month to play in front of a crowd, according to the Sacramento Music Census, which was released Aug. 21. Regulatory barriers and confusion about permitting dominated the concerns in the census, Steinberg said.
