Philadelphia lawmakers are attempting to pass a law that would require  “Venues and Promoters to submit applications 30 days in advance to the Chief of Police proving entertainment licenses, contracts between promoter and venue, liquor licenses and security plans before EVERY show scheduled.” The bill would cause many DIY promoters to go out of business and negatively affect the Philadelphia local music scene. Click here to sign a petition in opposition to this law that will be sent to Philadelphia lawmakers.

The Bronx and The Menzingers are two of many bands in support of the petition.
