CANCELLED PETITION: City of Lansing, Michigan: Allow the Blackened Moon Concert Hall to re-open.

Well, this is embarrassing.

The City of Lansing had nothing to do with the closure. As it turns out, the venue was closed due to the lack of proper permits, and the decision to close exists not between the BMCH and the City, but between the owner and his landlord.


I was acting on too little information and hearsay, and I sincerely apologize. My heart may have been in the right place, but I failed to gather all the facts before opening this petition.

May a new venue for metal soon rise.

Regretfully yours,

A. G.

      The city council didn't appear to be meeting today. We'll try again next week. Until then, keep those signatures coming! I can't believe we're nearly at 1,000 signatures....

      Stay metal!

      I went to sleep at 02:30 EDT with the petition hovering at around the ninety-signature mark, and woke up seven hours later to almost double that; as I write, the number's now triple that.

      Tomorrow afternoon, I'll print out the full signature list, along with some choice comments from the "Reasons for Signing" section, and personally deliver it with a friend to City Hall. In the meantime, keep those signatures coming! Change.org automatically raises the signature goal whenever it passes the previous threshold, but believe me when I say that all your voices put together will be extremely hard to ignore.

      Stay metal!

      The basement 414 had just closed this year, the last thing we need is another venue to shut down.

      It's a heavy metal place, not many of them are around. It's a great place for metal heads to connect and just hang out.
