Little Hamilton Needs Our Help Again!

Almost a year ago to the day, we found out that a serious clean-up was in order to save Little Hamilton from potential eviction. Today comes word that the beloved house-show venue is in jeopardy once again. Apparently they are in debt and in need of some help with rent and volunteers: "It's decision-making time and we need to know who out in the world is ready and willing to help the Little Hamilton Collective stay alive," they say through an email.

That's where you come in, you show-going, fun-loving, rock-'n'-roll-supporting citizen, you. Do you want awesome shows to stop happening? Of course you don't. LHC is holding a meeting tonight at 6:30 p.m. for anyone interested in helping out. That'd be 1318 Little Hamilton St., 37203. Full message after the jump.

Little Hamilton is in trouble. We are in debt and need support. We are at a point where we have the option to sign a new, 2-year lease to stay at the location that you all love so dearly. However, it is not clear that we have the funds to keep paying rent - even with all the fundraising that we do that many have you have contributed to. It's decision-making time and we need to know who out in the world is ready and willing to help the Little Hamilton Collective stay alive.

As some of you may or may not know, Little Hamilton is a volunteer-run collective. Anyone can be a member and contribute to decision-making, but we also need help building and providing the infrastructure to maintain a smooth flow of operations in the space. We always need volunteers to help with event preparation, host shows, clean up the space, advertise for events and plan fundraisers. If you have always thought of getting more involved (or even if you haven't), NOW is definitely the time.

As always, there is a Little Hamilton Collective meeting tonight - Monday at 6:30pm. Please come if you are invested in the future of the Little Hamilton Collective. If you cannot come to the meeting, feel free to respond to this email [mollymein /at/ gmail /dot/ com] with ideas about how to help Little Hamilton.
