Help save the Lost Cross House!

September 5th, 2010 by

Carbondale, IL‘s legendary punk house, the Lost Cross needs your help! It seems one of the tenants abruptly moved out, owing back rent, bills, etc. The sole tenant left at the house cannot afford to live there on his own, so the Carbondale punk scene (and those of us who have moved on from there as well) are trying to help raise money to pay for half the rent while Lost Cross looks for a new roommate. After 24 years of having punk shows, parties, practices, etc. no one wants to see the Lost Cross go away so easily. Understandably, the landlord wants to rent his property and if money can’t be raised he might be forced to rent to someone who might not want to keep up the tradition of Lost Cross. They are taking donations via PayPal at
