Keep "That British Place" Open!
"That British Place", opened it's doors in April 2008 and has since provided high end, professional, and great sounding rooms to both local, national, and international acts, who have all been proud to call "That British Place" home! At a time when tech companies are forcing businesses to shut down in Venice and Santa Monica, we try to offer a bit of the old westside feel, a family run, friendly, and affordable place for musicians to hone their craft, and feel comfortable.
Well, it would seem that we are also victims of this wave of businesses being pushed out, we have had unfounded complaints made by a new neighbor, which have led to disputes with the property managers, who have now started eviction processes towards us. I could go into more detail about the lies and downright nasty behavior of our new neighbor, but suffice to say, it's enough to push our business to the very brink of the end.
We feel we offer a valuable and valued asset to the westside, we feel we are part of a greater community, and we fear that losing "That British Place" would be a massive loss to the Los Angeles music community in general. Please sign and share this petition, we don't know if it will help sway management, but we feel it's important to show them the lives that will be effected.
Thank you all, we love you
