THEE OH SEES/THE BASEMENT
So, our last gig, Thee Oh Sees at The Basement, was absolutely awesome. Great band, great show, in our favourite Brum venue. With this in mind, I am absolutely gutted to announce…
Very VERY sad news… It’s Just Noise’s most favouritest Birmingham venue THE BASEMENT is closing down! Now it is the most badass joint in town, the landlord is tripling the rent, which is frankly ridiculous. From the 1st July until it closes its doors on the 18th, It’s Just Noise will be running a series of super cheap and super awesome events to celebrate just how bloody good it was. We know you feel the love too, so come join us and let’s drink the bar dry!
Below is the mailout from The Basement, with details of all the upcoming events:
Our Basement Brothers and Sisters,
It is with a heavy hearts filled to bursting with 12 whole months of fun that we must announce that The Basement will soon be shutting its doors for good. Sad faces all round, we know.
‘The Man’ has loved having us rent his unused, unwanted basement for ramshackle, packed out, rowdy, rowdy funtimes so much that when it came to renewing our lease he has more than tripled the yearly rent, to which we cannot rise. (Maybe they can turn it into another Subway?)
But fear not fellow underground movers and shakers! For from the 1st right on through to the 18th of July we are going to show Brum that we sure as shit know how to party! We urge you to join us and join us you must cus for 18 days we is gonna be hellbent on good times and loud times and very, very drunk times. Come and tell us how much you’ll miss us, there might be a drink in it for ya…….Let’s make us some memories!
Aimee & Raya and everyone at The Basement x
