We’re part of a national initiative launched by the Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of 100s of independent music venues.
by The Prince Albert in Brighton, England, United Kingdom
Prince Albert has hosted some of my favourite Brighton shows in these last few years. To lose it as a venue would be a massive blow to not only the local music scene, but as a cultural hub that would attract people from all over to come and play this phenomenal venue. Let's hope we can save it!
In May, two of Boomtowns most beloved micro stages, Postal Posse and The Jobcentre put together a twelve hour stream for #saveourvenues and raised nearly £900 to spread between the venues they connect most with in Brighton. We have since started a TV channel to keep on making weird stuff happen at www.snac.tv
Very happy to support the Save the Prince Albert cause Seen some truly brilliant gigs in the small bit perfectly formed upstairs space over the years, and would be an absolute disaster if this venue was forced to close, as its crucial for helping to break new bands on the start of their musical journeys - support The Prince Albert!
I played a gig at The Prince Albert a very very long time ago... probably around 1996/7. Live techno/acid/dance music duo known as "LOGAN 5" with my mate Chubba. And then 20 years later after seeing Back To The Planet I bumped into an old university friend I hadn't seen in as many years after popping in for post-gig drinks. Would be very sad if The Prince Albert disappeared.
