Red tape part 2: Open the palace

Last updated 16:08 04/05/2012

I've missed a lot of things about not actually having a central city to go to any more. I've adjusted to partying in the suburbs. I don't like it but I've adjusted.

But one place I really violently miss is Goodbye Blue Monday, the coolest little music venue and bar that you could wish for.

Since it was destroyed I've been periodically texting its creator Johnny Moore about when he's going to open a new place.

Today I read this letter from him to the Christchurch City Council on his blog at and now I am mad.

This sort of bureacracy gone feral is just ridiculous - give this guy a break!
