Fiddle and Bone Round 2

Same story, different year. Another (in)famous Brum live venue The Rainbow, Digbeth is to face the chop due to noise complaints. It's baffling that someone would buy a residence that was sold to them as being in a 'vibrant city centre location' and then bitch when they realise the vibrancy doesn't work 9 to 5 hours!. Birmingham regulars will have seen this depressing tale unfold before in the late 90's with Jazz/Blues live venue The Fiddle and Bone, unfortunately many letters to MP's and the press came to nought and now that place stands like some beer themed Marie Celeste. The Rainbow story could be more devastating as it sets a presidence for the whole of Digbeth's future in The Big City Plan. Watch This Space!!.
