Typical Station 4 antics at a Gallagher/Metallagher show

St. Paul's punk and metal haven Station 4 is taking a breather in a move to make future club-goers breathe better in the future. While there's something oh-so-punk about sweating your face off in the confines of a club during the height of summer, the owners taking measures to replace its ventilation system. Unfortunately, this means shows will be shut down until Labor Day, according to a statement from the venue.

For the time being, shows will be diverted to other venues, including the Garage, the Triple Rock, and the Cabooze. "When we re-open in September, we will have a new HVAC system," a statement reads. "In other words, no more ungodly heat!"


Here's the full statement from Station 4:

The building owners of 201 4th Street (Station 4's building) have been engaged in an 18 month battle with the City of St Paul over the City's desire for new ventilation. The City has granted the building owners two extensions, the latest of which expires on June 7th. Station 4 will have to close for 80-90 days to complete the ventilation work because it will lack a Certificate of Occupancy until the new system is approved.

Unfortunately, this means after Friday's show we will be closed until Labor Day.

I have been dreading writing this as we were hoping to get an extension from the city so that the shows already scheduled this summer could happen. I myself have a big show scheduled next week that now will be canceled.

The good news is that when we re-open in September, we will have a new HVAC system. In other words, no more ungodly heat! It just sucks that we have to shut down to get it.

That's all I can tell you for now. For anyone who has any shows scheduled, we are sorry. This is now out of our control. We will work to try to reschedule for the fall. As far as National shows, refunds are available at point of purchase.

I will keep things updated on this page when I know what's going on. I am just a guy who runs the Facebook page. I do not have much power.

Thank you to all of our patrons. While this is a really crappy way to do it, we all know a remodel is needed.

Thank you.

Why reopen it? The attitude of the place is all wrong. Surly staff and bookers who rip off bands by presenting them with invoices for sound/lighting staff at the end of the night. I personally know two bands that had that happen, a sudden bill for $250-$300 at the end of the night. Thieves.
