While management didn’t provide a specific date, they said they’ve been given notice. “The writing is on the wall and our final weekend at Ashley Road has been made clear,” they wrote. Their exact plans for what they call a “massive blowout” party before shuttering will be announced next week.
Club owners knew that they would eventually shut down, but did not know exactly when until now. To make the most of it, they threw a series of “the beginning of the end” parties throughout September and October.
The announcement comes as numerous residential developments have sprung up in the surrounding neighborhood. With tenants moving in, the club’s current location won’t be suitable for much longer. To make the most of it, the club has numerous free shows scheduled in the next couple of weeks. For more information about those shows, sign up for the club’s mailing list.
Billed as a “100% grassroots” arts and events space, The Cause is known for its support of independent businesses and mental health initiatives.
In order to gain entrance to the venue, attendees must show proof of a negative COVID-19 lateral flow test.
