Since opening its sticker-clad front door back in 2008, The Ten Eleven has hosted countless rad and sweaty-ass shows, drenched in the youthful miracle of punk as an attitude (and maybe beer). Once named The Warhol, The Ten Eleven got its current name from location details, like some of the finest joints of all time. Now, after years hosting strong visiting talent, like The Thermals, King Khan and the Shrines, The Men, The Coathangers, HEALTH, Cloud Nothings and many more, and nurturing young local acts devotedly, the rock sweatshop is throwing one last party before hanging up its name and its punk cred. Owned by Colin Wells, Brandon Hicks and Jordan Williams all these years, the club will officially belong to Michael Carrillo (Deer Vibes), who has basically grown up in the place, doing everything from tending bar to working sound and basically being the de facto general manager at times. This weekend, come celebrate what was, and what is to come, in one last hurrah. The two nights of shows will feature some of the bands that helped shape the place, including The Grasshopper Lies Heavy, Cinderleaf and The Cardinal Health.
