"I noticed you always smile and seem really friendly...but the way you smiled was so empty it hurt to watch you. You're hurting like crazy on the inside, yet you grin and bear it. At least thats this man's opinion anyway."
There is a venue called the Che Cafe in San Diego that is very near and dear to our hearts that is under threat of being shut down.
It’s not because they can’t raise enough money, but because the administration at UCSD (where the venue resides) has prohibited the venue from raising their own funds to bring the building up to code. The administration has been aware of the conditions for at least four years without budgeting anything towards the needed repairs.
This is a venue with over 30 years of history that has hosted the likes of Billy Corgan, Bon Iver, At the Drive-In, Jimmy Eat World, and countless other local and up-and-coming bands.
