I wish I could say I didn't see this coming - but the age old conflict between punk rockers and the men in blue flared up and shut down DIY punk venue Miami Chum Bucket this weekend. Sudden permit trouble forced a day-of-show move for day 3 of the Chum Bucket's "305 Fest" to Churchill's this past Sunday and forcing the co-op to move all of their upcoming shows to different venues.
Today, multiple posts on the Chum Bucket's facebook page have announced they will be shuttered for shows for "an unknown period of time" while they attempt to get their doors back open. They will be opening a both a kick starter project and a paypal account so musical do-gooders can help them out. When they get those going, I'll post.
