1. SAVE The Canterbury Arms in Brixton

This is a support group opposed to the proposed closure of a much loved local pub which has served the Brixton community for decades.

The Canterbury Arms is steeped in history, especially for patrons of The Brixton Academy and the wider musical audience who've attended pre/post gigs over the years, along with well supported and established club nights such as Time Tunnel and How does it feel.

2. Get KRA to tour in the USA

KRA is an incredible Japanese Rock band mixing punk, indie rock, and funk all into an incredible milkshake. They move and play with such technical ingenuity and passion.

We need to see bands like this supported so they can go country hopping. This broadens our horizons as a country and stimulates the spread of culture on both ends. And the music rocks, need I say more?

3. Support Original Musicians And More Live Music Venues Please

The Bluestacks Jam Club Supports musicians and provides a fully equipped stage with PA,Mics,Drums and Guitar Amps in various venues in Ireland for all Musicians to perform even if its their first time to do so.

We encourage original music and Singer Song Writers to network with other Musicians and make music with them or maybe you wannna start a band and get to know people in the Music business like Recording Studios, Music Venues, Artistes and Managers.

5. Make The Ambassador Theatre of Dublin wheelchair Accessible

The Ambassador theatre in Dublin is not wheelchair accessible which is discriminating against disabled people:

1. There are stairs in it with no lifts;

2. No wheelchair accessible toilets;

3. Nowhere for wheelchairs to go when actually in the venue to avoid crushes and moshes.

As a result people with disabilities cannot attend live concerts in this venue!

6. More Ray Quinn gigs

Recently, Ray Quinn hasn't been performing many gigs around the country.

We all understand that he is very busy at the moment, but should he be performing more gigs to satisfy his fans?

7. Ban ebay ticket sales

Most people that are regulars on the gig scene and even ones that are not will know, trying to get tickets to see a band / concert these days is mostly down to luck.

This I believe is due to the amount of people buying tickets simply to sell them at huges profits on ebay. The evidence to support this claim can be seen by anyone that goes onto ebay and searches for tickets. I recently seen a £12.50 ticket for one of my favourite bands on ebay selling for £90 (this was the day after i tried myself to get tickets to this gig with no luck).

It is my own opinion, as well as most of the people i have discussed this with, that if ticket sales on ebay are stopped there will be a lot less people buying them simply to sell on, and a lot more chance of genuine giggers being able to purchase them at their true value.
