Echo Base SHOWLESS Until Further Notice



Amy Elliott, who plans on writing for us any minute now, emailed me to let me know Echo Base Collective will no longer be having live shows. Why? In the MySpace Bulletin he posted over the weekend, he explains. Here’s the guts of said bulletin, courtesy of said Miss Elliott:


“Please remove all our shows from your MySpace, and warn other house venues to do the same. We were raided last night by about 15 police officers. It’s a long story, but they said they used MySpace to get us.

Just put the warning out there that the popo are out to shut everyone down. They sent in an undercover (and I read it, but I didnt want to discriminate, the guy just looked like a douche) and I was outside when he called them all in.

They are out to shut down all “illegal rave” parties.

Please put a bulletin out that asks people to help volunteer time, work, and knowledge to make this place legit to prevent this from happening and allow us to do shows again. We need to get the building up to code and get permits and talk to the alderman/police etc., etc.

Everyday after 4pm you can stop by, help out, clean up, work on bikes to help us make $ and write letters. ALSO ALL DAY SATURDAY AND SUNDAY ARE WORKDAYS. COME AND VISIT.

PLEASE HELP OUT IF YOU ENJOY THIS SPACE AND WHAT WE DO

WE ARE NOT SHUT DOWN, JUST ON HIATUS. “

So, until further notice, all shows here are postponed.
