Green Room Closing Indefinitely

In Canada, Celebrate Your Scene, Gigs, Montréal on May 18, 2010 at 12:34 am

We’ve just received a message that the Green Room (or the Mile End Cultural Center) is shutting down indefinitely due to a fire that occurred there last Sunday morning. Here’s the full message:

Green Room …with the utmost regret
Last Sunday morning just before 8 am a fire broke out in the green room .
It was caused by an electrical short of an extension cord. The fire pretty much gutted the venue completly . Closing the venue for an indefinate time I dont know if the venue will reopen or what the plans are for the future.

We do however have some employes who are out of a job .If you are in need of some pretty damn good crew please do not hesitate to contact me.

A great great great venue a tragedy….

This really is a shame. It’s one of the best venues in Montreal, for sure. Most recently, we saw the fantastic Titus Andronicus and Hollerado there. I don’t yet know what this means for the shows that are scheduled to go on there but I’m sure they will probably be moved to different venues and possibly moved to a different date. We’ll let you know as more details roll in. Let’s hope for the best for the employees and the venue itself.
