Help save the West End Centre, Aldershot
Just a quick request for all of you fine people, because I know my readers are the sort of charming music obsessives that really care about this stuff. The West End Centre in Aldershot, England is in danger of being closed, and as its the only half decent venue (and its actually a really great one) in its general area a lot of people feel it would be a real shame. It's part of a scheme to cut back on government spending on the arts (so what's new), and i'm sure there are a number of other things that could be cut back on before a wonderful place like this should be allowed to close. I've seen some pretty great bands there over the last 5 years or so, plus some great live comedy too. Anyway there's more info on the situation on the Aldershot News and Mail site, but my main request for you lot would be to go and sign this petition, which might go some way as to convincing the powers that be not to close the place. When it comes to saving live music, every little helps folks. Cheers!
