It reads: “Been thinking all morning how to address this, and there really is no easy explanation. Our building is for sale. We are unsure of our next move, but we are hitting this head on immediately so that we can ensure a seamless transition of our business whether we stay or move to a new location. These things can take months which buys us time, but we also are already locking in shows for 2024 so we kinda have to go ahead and prepare for the worst.
