Since 1986, 924 Gilman has been a collectively run, not for profit, all-ages club. While many here probably could care less about the type of music played at Gilman, it would still be sad to lose another music venue in the Bay Area.

Taken from their website:

On July 1, 2010 our rent will increase to nearly $7000.00 a month (as of now it’s approximately $4300.00), jeopardizing the future of 924 Gilman.

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.

Maybe Green Day should step up and help out the venue that made them.

One of my best friends lives two blocks away and I've not yet been to it.

They are trying to get non-profit status, but in all likelihood it's going under. Fucking shame.

Awuh, this is really too bad. I had a lot of fun seeing shitty punk rock shows back in my glory days. :(

Green Day was 86'ed from Gilman for going mainstream.
