Save The Half Moon!
The Half Moon in Putney, one of the most celebrated and respected venues in South London, is facing closure.
Since 1963, the club has hosted bands such as the Rolling Stones, U2, Kate Bush, Bert Jansch, Bo Diddley, Dire Straits and Fairport Convention. Now it could shut its doors for the last time on January 31, due to ‘market forces, the economic climate and other circumstances beyond our control’.
Says the venue: ‘Without the right measures being taken The Half Moon could easily join a growing list of music venues that have closed in recent months/years. It would be another blow to music and culture in London if The Half Moon disappears as well.
‘You can help save The Half Moon. Please vote with your feet and come for a drink, or come to one of our nightly live music shows. To see what’s on visit the gig guide at www.halfmoon.co.uk
Let’s see if we can at least save one venue from this fate. Remember: without this sort of club, the heroes of tomorrow may never get the chance to play! So, go on make a resolution to check out the Half Moon at least once.love for
