Warehouse is closing on October 8th and it is a community tragedy. Due to financial constraints and outside pressures, the 30 year running staple has been forced to close. Warehouse isn't the usual nightlife hub. As a music, arts, and cultural focused venue it has provided 30 years of supportive space to up-in-coming and established artists. It's been a creative home to local and international talents and has been a profound tourism site. Warehouse has served as one of the few safe havens for the queer community and allies, and has promoted an overall ethic of love and acceptance. It has sustained the local economy for both employees and artists, and it's closure will have a crippling effect for the entire community. Help us save our beloved Warehouse and the significant place it holds as a national gem. But know that the work doesn't stop here-- we need to actively work with the city and organize efforts to keep Warehouse alive. If you have ever been positively impacted by this venue, TAKE A STAND.
