Please read and sign the cultural crisis petition in relation with the end of Tonic in NYC...

Group Description

This group is to celebrate and pay homage to the recently defunct club TONIC in New York City!!!

As you probably know, the legendary avant-garde, creative and experimental music venue, located at 107 Norfolk in the Lower East Side of Manhattan closed its doors for good on April, 13, 2007...

This is devastating news for the Downtown community as well as for every musicians and fans all over the world who care for adventurous and open-minded music. Tonic (1998-2007) was indeed an immensely important place for underground culture just like were at their heyday the CBGB's (also closed in 2006) or the Knitting Factory (now mostly a trivial rock club among others). All that is left now seems to be memories, gratitude and maybe PHOTOS!!!

So if you have any pictures related to Tonic, taken outside, in the main room or in the ))sub((tonic lounge during concerts, events, festival, parties, whatever: post them HERE. There is no restriction about the number, just try to pick your best shots.

And for those who even ignored the existence of Tonic, here's a list of some of the great musicians/artists who performed there over the years:
