924 Gilman’s Future in Jeopardy?

Historic all-ages punk venue 924 Gilman may be forced to close its doors in light of an upcoming rent increase of about $3,000 a month. According to a blog post on the volunteer-run venue’s web site today, its landlord has been increasing its rent every year for the last 23 years, but this year’s raise is the equivalent of about twenty years’ worth — an extra $31,000 — starting July 1. The venue is seeking donations to help cover the cost, and is offering T-shirts and tote bags to those that donate more than $25. The full post after the jump:
