924 Gilman in Berkeley Needs Help To Stay Open

924 Gilman

Berkeley’s legendary all ages DIY punk/indie music & art space 924 Gilman needs help to stay open after a massive rent increase. Donations can be made via PayPal.

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.

SF Chronicle has more on what’s happening with 924 Gilman.
