Published Sep 29, 2010The Tranzac (Toronto Australia New Zealand Club) is one of Toronto's staple arts and music clubs, playing host to frequent concerts, as well as acting as a home base for Blocks Recording Club, a co-operative that has released albums by Final Fantasy, Fucked Up, One Hundred Dollars and more.
Unfortunately, the Tranzac's status in the Toronto music scene has not made it impervious to the economic recession, as well as to the general decline in the music industry. As such, the club is currently struggling financially and is faced with possible closure before the year's end.
In a press release, the venue announced that it will be holding a campaign to raise the $40,000 necessary to remain open. This means fundraising concerts, donations and a membership drive.
If you'd like to join, there are different levels of membership at $25, $250 and $500. As a self-described "non-profit member supported art space," these memberships can help to ensure that the club remains a staple of the Toronto arts scene for years to come.
