It is a scary thing when a bunch of DIY punks start trying to find a million dollars, but here we are, looking for exactly that. Scary like daunting, like an uphill climb, like where on earth are we going to get money like that.
The older I get (yeah, yeah) the more I realize the importance of no Rio not just as an arts space for the likes of me, but as an all ages punk venue. That doesn't exist in New York City anymore (did it ever? dunno.) -- a place were 16 year olds can get together and make music, see shows, be both safe and unsupervised. I think that is immeasurably important and it is a tiny slice of what happens at ABC no Rio.
So I think everyone should join me in supporting the building fund.
