Philly music scene in danger!

As if Philadelphia's live music clubs staying in business wasn't a problem enough, now if Bill No.100267 is ratified then Philadelphia's music scene is in even greater danger! The new bill would require all promoters to apply for a permit from the Philadelphia Police a minimum of 30 days before any event is to take place. Besides the massive amounts of paperwork and redtape proposed for doing a single show, the police can deny the event from happening as little as 11 days before the show. The bill will also hold the promoter liable for the crowd's behavior at a show. (So if a fight breaks out, it's the promoter's fault?).

If you're opposed to this bill you can sign this: online petition
