Owners of the La Tulip Concert Hall, set up at Gilles Latlip’s former Variety Theater on Papino Avenue in Montreal for nearly 20 years, are facing a request for an injection that could lead to the unconditional closure of the premises, they say.
The company La Tribe issued a press release late Tuesday afternoon stating that the building adjacent to La Tulipay was “at the end of its power and resources” in the wake of the two-year-long situation. , The property, which came from the son of Gilles Latulippe, was purchased by the new owner.
A press release states that “Gilles Latlip’s former warehouses directly adjacent to the auditorium’s venue have been converted into” the residence where he lives “by new neighbors. But the city of Montreal “empowered by mistake to turn the commercial space into a residential area,” the press release said.
As neighbors regularly complained about the noise coming from the auditorium, La Tribe claimed to have “spent dozens of police visits, some threats and tickets” following “luck in all sorts of charges to protect themselves”.
Claude Larivi, La Tribe’s Bigg Boss, who arrived by telephone in the evening, explained to us that he had decided to speak publicly because the La Tulip team was at the “end of the roll”. “This weekend, two police raids during Dumas demonstrations caused Sunday to overflow.”
The singer also commented on the situation on Twitter in the evening. “La Tulipe was fined $ 1000 for performing on Thursday and last Friday. The police came to clap over my sound system shoulder. We also have a number of tickets to our daytime rehearsals at the end of 2021. Surreal! ”
For almost two years, the auditorium has been closed for the most part due to an epidemic, and it has been “almost systematic” to call the police “almost systematically” and even for non-amplified events. Even during the day. Interventions range from general warnings to threats and fines. “I do not have an exact number, but it’s more than two dozen times,” said Claude Larry.
“It’s forbidden to turn a commercial space into a living space anywhere adjacent to a performance hall or bar,” Claude Larrywi recalled. And this regulation existed when the building was purchased two years ago.
“We have discussed administratively and politically with the people of the city and the mistake has been acknowledged. An official notice has been sent to the city owner in which this situation has been mentioned. But time is running out and we are now facing a situation whose end will be dramatic.”
The tribe will actually appear in court in the week of December 21st, facing a “request for an injection regarding noise,” the outcome of which Claude Larry could not have imagined.
Especially since the solutions are not many, La Tulip building is classified as inherited by Quebec, which also dictates the owner of La Tribe.
“It’s not to be a profession other than scenery. You can not become a promoter, you can not turn it into a pharmacy or a condo.
Cloud Larry publicly called on Mayor Valerie Plante and Plateau-Mont-Royal Borough Mayor Luke Robouin, who said he had already spoken directly about the situation. He asks them to “put an end to this Kafkesk episode”.
“If necessary, you will bear the brunt of this closure due to the fault of the municipal administration and your inertia in the file,” a press release sent by La Tribe said.
“When we talked to the city, we were told that La Tulipe was a priority,” said Claude Larry. She continued to contact her employer so he could not be there. But that does not prevent the ban from taking its course and we are approaching midnight. We had not heard from the City for many months. We are at the end of our resources. ”
We could not contact Borough Mayor Luke Robouin by phone, but he responded on Twitter.
“The La Tulip Theater is right here. The cultural consciousness of the plateau is an asset to be preserved. We have had numerous discussions with employers and are closely monitoring legal proceedings between the two private parties. A solution emerges. ”
During the “normal” year, La Tulip exhibits 150 and 200 events, to say the least.
