New Gear from Mega Systems, Inc. Creates a Buzz Around 1015 Folsom | Mega Systems

And, with huge acts scheduled for Super Bowl 50 weekend, 1015 Folsom owner Ira Sandler got a jump start on the renovations.
He called on Eric Bernstein of Intelligent Lighting Services in Austin, TX once again to upgrade its lighting and video system with gear from Mega Systems, Inc. Bernstein kicked off the project by taking Sandler and his Technical Director Scot Peterson to LDI last November. Says Sandler, "I have heard from several sources that the LED wall was the most talked about thing in the entire city. Sandler is reaping the benefits of that buzz, with gigantic spikes in business over the last three months. With the video wall now the centerpiece of the club, Sandler says he has the ability to book more talent. "Artists who play at festivals are used to having a giant LED wall as part of their act. Says Sandler, "Now we have more to offer." With business better than ever, Sandler and his team feel even more excited about their upcoming 30 year anniversary.

1015 Folsom owner Ira Sandler gets the occasional noise complaint from neighbors who live within earshot of the club's windows, but the club is considered in compliance by the Entertainment Commission, the city branch that, among other things, keeps watch over development projects near music venues and other places of entertainment.
When a developer announced plans recently to build an 85-foot residential structure at 363 6th Street near 1015 Folsom, Sandler immediately brought it to the attention of the Entertainment Commission. "I wanted the EC to use their new powers to protect me," Sandler said. At a hearing organized by the Commission this October between the developer and Sandler, it was established that the developer had done sound tests that necessitated putting multiple glazing on the windows, and Sandler may need to do a bit of sound mitigation work to his roof. Sandler has since requested to see copies of the tests to verify their accuracy, although he hasn't received them yet. Sandler's been down this road before, and knows how costly noise reduction can be. In 1993, before the Entertainment Commission existed and when 1015 Folsom was essentially a South of Market warehouse sprinkled with windows, the City built affordable housing along the adjoining alley. Sandler, who had just bought the building, spent a million and a half dollars to build a concrete shell and a 12-inch air space around the entire structure, and other roof upgrades to reduce how much of the club's music could be heard outside the club. "[Chapter 116] is a dynamic piece of legislation, because of the enormous amount of power that developers have in San Francisco," Sandler said. "There's a lot of money on the line here, and a huge Manhattanization of this city is happening. This legislation came in because supervisors have some kind of conscience that something really bad was going to happen to the character of SF." "[Chapter 116] is a dynamic piece of legislation that was created to make a more level playing field given the enormous amount of power developers have in San Francisco," Sandler said.
