Dear Friends of The Birmingham
We'd like to reach out for your help!
Since new management took over the birmingham last year, we've seen some incredible local bands through the venue and have grown to be a great fixture Melbourne's live music community.
The idea of hosting bands at the Birmingham is slowly fading due to noise complaints from one neighbour. And in the last couple of days,
has become serious to the point that we could be told to cease bands as of tonight - I would also like to point out that the neighbour moved into the residence after the venue had been hosting bands.
In a last minute dash - we are asking for anyone who has visited the venue, for a beer or a band, or even anyone who appreciates the importance of preserving the venue to sign this petition below.
Although - on a legal standpoint, the petition will not hold water, we are hoping to appeal to the neighbour so they can see the venue is loved and cherished by a broader public.
So, if you could please take the time to write a small message, or even just a signature - we will be passing this on the neighbour.

UV's played good. HADUKEN, HADUKEN, CONFUSION, CONFUSION. Went down good. Marcus told a very the crowd about a strange dream he'd had involving a cat, his father and a cop raping him. Marcus also had one of his top 5 costumes ever. DX had a great call from the back of the stage in the dark, "Can i get more spotlight on me?". The place started to really fill up when UV's were on.
I have video, gimme a few hours and it'll be up(it's worth it!)

(FROM THE LAND OF THE RISING SUN) (BIRUSHANAH)
On Wednesday the 10th of February, Bar Open hosts a night of crushing, psychedelic, noise-rock featuring the highly anticipated return of Firewitch. After many a moon in hibernation, they will be performing a special set, switching between classic Firewitch motifs and material from their latest incarnation as Inappropriate Tough Guy Behaviour. Support comes from the free-form phych duo Breathing Shrine, neanderthalic noise-core sect Occult Blood, plus a special appearance by mystery act from the land of the rising sun. Don't miss this rare program of monolithic sonic disorder.
