Residents of Venice Beach in Los Angeles say soaring crime rates and the exploding homeless population have made life in the elite beachside community unbearable.

A 'catastrophic' increase in homelessness in Los Angeles has seen hundreds of tents line the beach's famous boardwalk.

Business owners say they are being forced to close their doors and longterm residents are afraid to leave their homes after dark after being subjected to violent attacks and intimidation.

Recent incidents - including a shooting on April 28 and an explosion at a homeless encampment - have left residents and business owners shaken.

Fed-up locals have written to city and county officials pleading for them to intervene.

The world-famous alternative beach community, 16 miles from downtown Los Angeles, has traditionally been a major tourism drawcard for the Californian city.

However, now the palm trees and promenade are blighted by hundreds of tents. The accompanying anti-social behavior has unsettled longterm business owners.

Hairdresser Kevin Buttress, 32, who has owner the Xquisite Barber Lounge for five years, said he had suffered two violent attacks in recent months.

He told Fox News he was attacked in November by a pit bull owned by a homeless person and was knocked unconscious with a skateboard.

'I've given a lot of myself to the community of Venice Beach,' Buttress said. 'And to see everything just fall to pieces, it's messed up,' he told Fox.

Buttress said the suspect in his attack was arrested and released days later amid efforts by Los Angeles County to cut the number of jail inmates over concerns about the spread of COVID-19.

Hundreds of residents have put their signatures to a letter pleading for help from city and county officials.

'Venice's world famous beach and boardwalk are crippled,' it says.

'Local children are refusing to come to the beach because they're frightened by what they've witnessed. Seniors who live on or near the boardwalk are terrified of walking in their own neighborhoods.'

Venice Neighborhood Council member Soledad Ursua said the homeless encampments had exploded during the COVID-19 lockdowns.

She said residents were afraid to be out after dark, and there were fights several times a day and shootings and stabbings on a weekly basis.

'It's just a very dangerous time to be a Venice resident right now,' she said.

Earlier this year, Klaus Moeller, the co-owner of Ben & Jerry's at Venice Beach, said he was closing his ice cream store after a huge increase in crime and homeless camps during the pandemic.

A report released earlier this year by the University of California in Los Angeles found homeless rates had increased by 50% in five years.

It found the economic fallout of the pandemic has left many more low-income residents on the brink of housing insecurity.

Official figures suggest there are about 15,000 chronically homeless people in L.A. County.

When 'couch surfers' and others who bounce in and out of homelessness, are included, that figure balloons to 66,000.

Dan Flaming, president of the Economic Roundtable, has projected that figure will nearly double in the next four years.

'That would be catastrophic for us,' Flaming told ABC7 in January.

According to figures from the Los Angeles Police Department provided to the Venice Neighborhood Council, the violent robberies in the neighborhood are up 177% from last year.

The same period has also seen a 162% increase in cases of assault with a deadly weapon involving a homeless person.

Videos depicting fires, fights, and harassment are a common sight on social media.

One such video shows a person showing an unidentified person hurling a homemade Molotov cocktail into a tent shortly before it bursts into flames.

And the death of a pet dog named Togo who was killed in a house fire has also been blamed on homeless people in the area.

The pet had become 'the latest victim of Venice's continued degeneration when a transient threw an accelerant into his home, burning him alive,' according to a tribute.

LA city leaders say the solution to the chronic homelessness issues is freeing up more public housing.

A 2019 ZED Report by Barbara Necek.

Well over a thousand years ago the first wooden huts were built out on the middle of a lagoon off the coast of northern Italy. The archives tell us these were the homes of people fleeing barbarian invasions in the aftermath of the collapse of the Roman Empire. Later, with land in short supply, man-made areas were developed. But construction was far from easy; the bed of the lagoon consisted of sediment and mud, forming a foundation that was constantly moving. Yet Venetian architects managed to build the city’s palaces, towers, and cathedrals. Venice stands on a forest of wooden piles which anchor the buildings to the lagoon’s muddy bed. The buildings themselves are constructed in such a way that they can compensate for movement, even earth tremors, without suffering noticeable damage.

But the water the Venetians built their city on is becoming more and more of a threat. Industrialization has played its part in disturbing the natural balance of the lagoon: The sea bed has subsided and the effect of the tides has changed, resulting in a water level in the city’s canals that is 24 centimeters higher than when they were first built. Added to that is the controversial presence in the lagoon of giant cruise ships: A source of income for the city, but also one that contributes to atmospheric pollution, as well as causing wake damage.

The Charlie Miranda Experience plays a Tribute to Jimi Hendrix

Including renditions of Hey Joe, Red House, Foxy Lady, Voodoo Chile, and an excerpt of Purple Haze all shot on a beautiful day at Venice Beach. The video is one long camera take while the music is playing and the audio is unretouched, or overdubbed.

I was scheduled for overtime work that Sunday afternoon and went to the beach instead. As I got there, Charlie Miranda was performing and I shot this video. After a little more sun, I ended up going to work anyway, and no one said anything.

This music performance is great and I still love listening to it.

Venice Beach Drum Circle
November 17, 2013

video copyright (c) 2013 William Schaeffer

I've been participating the Venice Beach drum circle for at least 15 years on an irregular basis. It is the most fun drum circle that I have attended, although my experience is limited. If you are ever in California and like to drum, be sure and stop by on a Sunday afternoon. The drum circle goes from about 2, or 3 (in the summer) till 10 or 15 minutes past sundown.

The beach closes at sundown and the police always help us end the evening in a group drumming and siren performance. We are sad to see it end, but the drumming has to end sometime.

As the sun sets, the drummers become more focused and animated in their drumming. The beauty of the sunset and the knowledge that the day is ending adds a special urgency to the final drumming performance of the night. Even the birds are more active, flying up and down the coast looking for a place to roost for the night.

The drummers are hot, the dancers are lively, and the music is relentless. Even though they are drumming at a rapid pace, the drummers are not tired. As the tempo starts to slack a new drummer takes over and vigorously energizes the circle to an even greater speed and power. We are feeling the joy of rhythm and motion, of sun and sand, in a group of fun loving like minded minstrels smiling and laughing and dancing to the relentless pounding of the drums. The moment seems like it will last forever and the mighty power of the drums will continue unabated. We are joyous and free.

But as the sky darkens, we see in the distance a small caravan of official police vehicles with the emergency lights flashing. They are silently crawling along the beach toward the drum circle.

The drummers know the moment cannot last, but they drum vigorously and intently with the desire to continue drumming all night if they have to.

Finally the police trucks silently pull up with their lights flashing and high beams blinding the drummers. Their presence animates the drummers to greater heights of energy and determination. For several minutes the drummers and trucks stand in uneasy confrontation and eventually the sirens begin. As if unable to resist the joy of drumming the police sirens release an incessant wailing over the pounding of the drums. The drummers become even more animated and the tempo continues. Everyone is laughing and dancing and pounding the drums and time seems suspended in an energetic dynamo of activity.

FINALLY, the end cannot be resisted and by some unseen signal all the drummers simultaneously play the standard finishing cadence. The sirens continue for a while as the people clap and cheer. Then everyone slowly drifts away, carrying their drums and their memories across the sand and into the darkness of their ordinary lives on another pleasant Sunday evening at Venice Beach. Ashe. Namaste.

*****

We are thankful for the chance to drum and grateful for the space and time permitted. Ideally, we are respectful and clean up after afterwards... leaving an opportunity to drum again.

The Venice Drum Circle ROCKS

2 years ago

I've been going to the Venice Beach drum circle since at least 1990. It used to be held up on the grassy area at Brooks Street, until it got so huge that it had to move out onto the sand.

I stopped going for a while after I broke my leg, but have started going again this past year and really enjoy the drums. I don't always bring a camera but was happy to find this footage.

These are some nice moments from August 31, 2003

Sunday November 27, 2011

William Schaeffer

Abraham Butler, [also sometime spelled Ibrihim] and wife Diane, are legends at Venice Beach and have been leading, by example, a generous, non-corporate, artistic lifestyle for decades. A dynamic force for free expression and fairness, Abraham has been championing populist art and music and the rights of the disenfranchised at the grassroots level of the heart and the street.

This video is of their rendition of "House of the Rising Sun" The performance was unbelievable. The audio recording does not do it justice. The band rocked. The unstable camera is due to the fact that I could not keep myself from dancing to the music. Foolishly, I thought that I could dance AND hold the camera still. Silly me. When you hear the music you will understand.

Hearing Abraham Butler and the Venice Beach Drum Orchestra jamming on the Beach is one of the highlights of living in Los Angeles and visiting Venice.

House of the Rising Sun

"There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's on a drunk

Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one."

- Alan Price, Nicholas Skorsky, Jean DeScarno, Jean-Claude Petit

" Don't nobody know what I'm talkin' about
I've got my own life to live
I'm the one that's gonna die when it's time for me to die
So let me live my life the way I want to
Yeah, sing on brother, play on drummer"
- Jimi Hendrix from "If 6 was 9"

Kevin Morgan - Spirit Rocks

On January 1, 2002 Venice Beach witnessed an amazing creation of balanced rocks. Everyone woke to find a virtual enchanted forest of abstract sculptures standing silent watch on the sandy beach.

For the next several months, that small section of the beach was a constantly changing virtual art gallery of these abstract rock sculptures, each one balanced against the elements.

Later I met and interviewed the artist, Kevin Morgan, and watched him work with the rocks. I haven't seen the sculptures in a few years now, and hope they are still being brought back to life in another whimsical collection on another beach, somewhere else along the California Coast.
