The OLCC and the Future of -ALL AGES- Shows.

PC-PDX Feb 13 2008 6:45P 0

IMPORTANT OLCC INFO!


Support the OLCC’s plans to allow music venues to admit people under 21 by writing an email before Friday, March 7, 2008. Visit PDX POP NOW! and find everything you need to support this issue and make a difference.
pc-pdx's summary: Remember the OLCC letter witting campaign from last fall and the possibility of opening up some of the venues to be able to serve the All Ages music community? Well it failed with a vote of 3-2 against accepting the amendments that would allow for such a change. The counsel did however say they would be open to another round of discussion about the changes. They way they voted pretty mush stated "We don't understand us now, so we';ll vote no to look professional since everybody is watching. Get back to us in a bit when we can look it over again." Well, that time is now! This is a very big opportunity to allow for an expansion of All Ages rights in the musical community so we need to do all we can to ensure that this happens. Unfortunately, all of the -hundreds & hundreds- of letters that were sent in during the last round cannot be taken into consideration this time around. Please take a few minutes and show your support for the right of accessible music for everybody. STEP #1: Educate yourself and the issue! Cary Clarke of PDXPOPNOW, Local Musicians 99, PC-PDX and StumpClub.org will be posting all the info and developments over the next few months. Step #2: Once you have a solid opinion and strong + smart argument, write the commission and let them know what you think about the changes. Every bit of input will help. Visit PDX POP NOW! and find everything you need to support this issue and make a difference. I know a lot of you were disappointed the last time round because of the inability to become part of the face to face process by attending the public meetings + hearings. It does suck that all the meetings are scheduled in such an inconvenient area of town and during school hours. We're looking into the possibility of having a meeting with the -voting commissioners- in a centralized location (like Backspace) so that they may directly hear your concerns and passion for this issue. Note that the meetings at OLCC headquarters are with the commissioners staff members and they are all pretty much on board with this idea. They are also the ones that receive your letters so even if you cannot attend any of the public meetings with the staff, your letters are -equally important- and the medium by which you contact them is no less important than another. There will be a lot of great people and organizations working on ensuring the success of these proposed changes. This process needs all the support we can give -let's shine the public spotlight on the OLCC, let them know we care about this issue and that people are watching and that they should make the right choice this time. Keep tuned as we will be posting the info on any and all developments between now and the final vote mid April. PC-PDX.COM | Portland Show Guide
