From Illness - Save the Freebutt!!!!

Howdy STA blog readers, Spencer from Illness here, just wanted to take a moment of your time to inform you of a live music crisis going on in Brighton at the mo. Over the last year or two a few great music venues like Pressure Point and The Barfly have closed in our hometown, and we've just found out that another, The Engine Rooms, is closed and the seemingly-invulnerable Freebutt is under threat of closure due to noise complaints (well, one noise complaint).

The Freebutt is an awesome venue and Illness played some of their first ever gigs there, thanks to the almighty Andy Rossiter, music promoter and venue manager extraordinaire. Andy took over the venue along with some other Brighton musical institutions like Alex from OIB Records, and they have done a really good job of putting on luscious new and established music pretty much every single night.

So, no matter where you live, if you want to, could you show some solidarity with our music scene could you head over to the Save The Freebutt campaign site for more info, and sign the petition to save the Freebutt
