This, of course, would result in the dance hall being torn down  – but it’s not over yet!

“A development permit sign has been erected at our beloved Blues Can announcing the developers who purchased our building’s plan,” they wrote.

Despite this, no one should count them out just yet!

“We are in talks with some true fans of The Blues Can that have resources far beyond what we have and have our fingers crossed so don’t lose hope,” they added.

“If we do have to say goodbye it will be a very sad and painful one.”

In the meantime, fans are encouraged to continue to visit and enjoy up-and-coming musicians every day until the end of the patio season – at least. 

As of right now, there is no official end-date sight, but they said they may have until the fall to entertain.

“It has been a true privilege to be your host for so long. Far longer than we ever thought we would be here.” they continued.

“Thank you to all the musicians, patrons and all our wonderful staff past and present.”

There’s still a chance they’ll see another 13 years.
