Tonight is the last night for the iconic Cellar Jazz Club in Vancouver

The Cellar Jazz Club in happier times. photo:Doug RandleOttawaJazzScene.ca interviewed Cory Weeds last year about his Cellar Jazz Club in Vancouver and how he kept it successful, both artistically and financially.

We're sad to report that tonight (February 26) is the Cellar's last night: Weeds couldn't reach an agreement with his landlord to extend the lease on the location.

Weeds is, however, staying in jazz in Vancouver. He's presenting a concert series in April, as well as booking a Tuesday night jazz series at a local restaurant. He will continue running his Cellar Live record label, and says he's looking for other things to do.

If you have a Livestream account, you can see Weeds' closing remarks at the club tonight at 7 p.m. PST.
