Can You Save The Annandale?

Written by Patrick Abboud on December 13, 2011

Struggling live music venue The Annandale is gearing up to launch a new campaign in the ongoing plight to save itself.

Managers Matt and Dan Rule have come up with the buy-a-brick project. In a nutshell it means you – the punter  – hand over some cash (in the form of a membership fee  ranging from $20-$250) and in return you get a plaque with your name on it attached to one of the bricks that keep the building standing. If that doesn’t make you all warm and fuzzy enough you’ll get a certificate to show your mates how devoted you are to saving the joint.

It’s promised that your cash will be put to good use ie – to further reduce the hotels debt (estimated at more than 2.5 million) in addition to an overhaul of the interior (goodbye beer-stench carpets) plus an upgrade on parts of the buildings exterior.

The Annandale buy-a-brick project will officially  launch in early 2012.

MusicFeeds will be speaking with the owners in coming weeks for a special feature on the venues history and ongoing struggle to stay afloat.
