Gilman

From the 924 Gilman blog

On July 1, 2010 our rent will increase by nearly $3000.00 a month, jeopardizing the future of 924 Gilman.

A little background…

The letter from famous all-ages, non-profit Berkeley, CA club, continues below…


The club’s rent has been increasing every year for the last twenty three years, and up until now we’ve been able to make the adjustments needed to compensate for those increases, but what we are facing now is the equivalent of having twenty years of rent increases condensed into one, and once it goes into effect the clock will begin to tick away as we struggle to generate the extra $31,000.00 a year needed to cover this massive rent hike.

We need your support!

Hmm, sounds familiar. For more information on 924 Gilman and how you can help, head to their site. The punk institution helped launch some of the most influential bands on the past 25 years and is currently hosting some of the same bands that frequent NYC haunts like ABC No Rio and killer festivals like Chaos In Tejas.

Alternative Tentacles released a documentary on 924 Gilman in 2008. Pick up a copy via the label.

Trailer for that and video of some of the great bands that played Gilman over the years, are below…
