Dookie: A Benefit for 924 Gilman Day Party 

Help the historical punk venue secure a permanent location.

924 Gilman is a longstanding, all-ages punk venue in Berkeley where many legendary bands — such as Green Day — got their start. Since 1986, the venue has served as a talent incubator for up-and-coming punk and hardcore acts, as well as a hospitable place for underground touring bands to perform. Currently, as rents rise astronomically in the Bay Area, many cultural hubs are pursuing strategies to secure their longevity amid the competitive real estate market. The Gilman is currently in the middle of a fundraising campaign that organizers hope will gather enough money over the next three or four years to secure a permanent location. To help the cause, The Night Light, a bar with punk roots in Oakland’s Jack London district, is hosting Dookie: A Benefit for 924 Gilman Day Party on February 28. The show, which features Bill Collins, Cinder Block, and DJ Jesse Luscious, will benefit this endeavor, as well as the Gilman’s efforts to lower door prices and expand its outreach to underserved populations.
