UCSD's University Centers Advisory Board is scheduled to vote Tuesday, May 13th on eliminating support for the historical Ché Café from its budget.

If passed, UCSD will effectively close the venue for an undetermined time until funds can be allocated to carry out what the University deems as critical renovations.

The venue launched in 1980 and has been a staple to San Diego's music scene since its conception. The venue has hosted a number of noted touring acts, such as Billy Corgan, Green Day, Jimmy Eat World, Rise Against and many more.

The Ché is one of the only all-ages venues left in San Diego and opens its doors to the community for fundraisers, art shows, theatrical acts and other events, many of which are hosted for UCSD clubs and organizations.

A meeting on the matter will be held from 2 to 3:30 p.m. In the Earl Warren Room in Price Center West on campus.
