Dear Friends, Family and Local Music Scene.

We regret to inform you that effective immediately Distortion Live Music Venue will be closing our door.

Honestly, it’s been a good run. We put our best foot forward. We can blame the economy, taxes, rising costs of overhead especially with liquor and staff, or the fact that less people are simple going out. But in the end does it matter?

We’re 11.5 years into this Music Scene as a business, longer as individuals. We’ve hosted some sweet bands. Hopefully gave some people some sweet memories. It really has been a wild ride!!

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to every band that ever graced the stage, every promoter, every agent, every volunteer, and every single one of you that walked through the door. Our staff, honestly they’re the best!! Thank you!! You have blessed us with memories we will never forget.

As you can imagine there’s a lot of stuff to organize in the next few days. We’re aware lots you have questions and concerns. We will respond and reach out to bands, promoters as time allows.

Yes, this really sucks but, we love CALGARY music and we love everyone who makes it possible. Love one another, support one another. Go to shows, not just your band’s show. SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC!! Cause in the blink of an eye, it can be gone....

Moving forward, I guess only time will tell.

Stay posted for venue changes and updates on events.

Love & Shit
Team D.
