Hello, this probably doesn't affect many of you but a venue called The Point here in Cardiff is facing closure.
The Point's an independently run 500 capacity venue that is basically stunning, a beautiful church conversion. Over the years I've seen loads of amazing gigs in there, Broken Social Scene, Hawk & A Hacksaw, The Hold Steady and a few others all spring to mind.
Annoyingly there are now flats built nearby, and the new neighbours don't really like the noise, so the venue is facing closure.
If anyone cares or feels strongly about this then could take a brief second to sign the petition at www.keepthepointalive.com -there's also a facebook group you can join here http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=11070492394&ref=mf
I really hate it when this kind of stuff happens.
