Beloved Glebe live music venue The Record Crate is the latest Sydney establishment set to close its doors.
In a statement posted to Facebook on Wednesday night, which has since been deleted, owners of the Glebe Point Road venue announced it will be closed as of Sunday this week following a six year run.
"To all the brilliant bands, soloists, poets, story tellers, DJ's, punks, rockers, metal heads, international artists, regulars, visitors, dog lovers, chefs, wait / bar staff, friends, and family, we have had the most amazing adventure and we hope you have too," the post reads.
"Sydney culture has changed so dramatically over the past 2 or 3 years and we simply could not keep up. We urge everyone to go to gigs, pay the door fee, support your muso friends, buy a drink (even a soft drink) and respect venues that are trying, desperately, to stay open and support our musicians. Please KEEP SYDNEY OPEN."
The Record Crate has played host to a number of popular local names over the years, including recent sets from Camp Cope's Georgia Maq, Peter Bibby, Cheap Fakes, Fierce Mild and Halcyon Drive.
The Music has contacted The Record Crate and City Of Sydney for further comment.
