The story of the Grad Club's financial troubles is far from uncommon across the province, country, even across the world! Small music venues everywhere were forced to cease operations during COVID, burning through any reserves they had, and taking on support loans just to keep the lights on. Now loans are coming due and rents are being increased, the result being that the ecosystem of small venues in this country is under threat.

It's time to stand up for culture and recognize the importance of art and music as it relates to the collective well-being and mental health of our society. Kingston music fans: the Grad Club needs you. Let's show this city that we want live music to survive and thrive!

Entry by donation ($25 suggested).
