Event Archive - Venue needs HELP - pls click venue link for info: Lache Cercel Roma Swing Ensemble

Sun. December 14th 2003 The Sugar Refinery (All Ages)
As you may or may not have heard we are closing at the end of December. Due to restrictions imposed on us by our liquor license and fire inspector we can not do what we need to do in order to survive financially and artistically.

We believe we have played an important role in the cultural development of Vancouver and wish to continue doing so someplace where we will be legally licensed.
We are asking the City of Vancouver to use their resources to help us relocate to an appropriate location with an appropriate license.

We are asking all of you to sign our petition ( which will be presented at the next council meeting. Please pass this along wherever you can. We have already received indications that the city is willing to help if they think enough people care.

As well as the online petition we also will be leaving copies in a number of locations all over town (Red Cat Records, Zulu Records, Scratch Records, etc). Please make whatever efforts you can to sign these as well.

If you wish to be updated with dates for the council meeting/news/ etc. please visit our website and join the mailing list.

Thanks for your support. We hope to be back as soon as possible.
