*UPDATE* (31 March, 2013)
The Somewhere There Collective is looking for partners. Are you interested in sharing a space with a motley crew of somewhat-strange-but-mostly-quite-gentle musicians?
As many of you will know, we were forced to give up our studio space early this year. We used that space to offer opportunities for making and hearing creative music every night of the week. We also offered it as rehearsal space, meeting space, and whatever other kind of space was needed during the day.
Going forward, we hope to partner with another organization/collective/... whatever, to find and run a space that is mutually beneficial and mutually inexpensive. We are wide open in terms of negotiating a use schedule with a partner or partners and wide open in terms of what that/those partners might be up to when we're not there. Off the top of our heads you might do: yoga, dance, painting, sculpting, teaching, writing, publishing, photography... you might be an art gallery or a book club or a school of some sort or... a law firm? Anything is possible.
Please get in touch and let's talk. We can be reached at bookshows.st(at)gmail(dot)com.

*UPDATE* (13 January, 2013)
The search for a new home for Somewhere There continues. In the meantime, our good friends at the TRANZAC have helped us out with the more immediate search for a home for the Somewhere There Festival of Creative Music, which will take place as planned on the 22-24 February, 2013 in the TRANZAC Main Hall.
The full line-up is now available on the Somewhere There Festival page.
Our thanks, again, for your ongoing support and positive energy,
The Somewhere There Collective
Friends and Fellow Travelers,
Due to a series of noise complaints and other unpleasantness, Somewhere There is officially in search of a new home. Our lease will be terminated as of the end of January 2013 but all shows and rentals scheduled for this month have been cancelled. Shows and bookings beyond the end of January should be considered tentatively booked. The search for a new Somewhere There is very much on and the music will begin again as soon as possible.
The Somewhere There Festival of Creative Music, scheduled to take place on the 22-24 of February 2013, will go ahead. Planning is almost complete and the full line-up as well as a new venue for the festival will be announced very shortly.
In the meantime, if you have any gear at the Sterling Road location, please arrange to pick it up as soon as possible. And if you have any energy or ideas to contribute to the search for a new home for informal creative music-making in Toronto, please get in touch through our email@example.com address.
Finally, thank you for your ongoing support, for your commitment to impossible and unreasonable music making, and for your patience and assistance in the coming weeks as we sort this all out.
Peace and good music to you all,
The Somewhere There Collective
