So Pissed Off We Can’t Even Think Up A Headline…

Like, wow…Who’d have thunk it? I mean, as righteously raucous as The Boston Brew undoubtedly are, with the capacity to blow roofs off venues everywhere, no one connected with this Organisation ever imagined they had it in them to inspire civil insurrection on a scale unseen since the Winter Palace got stormed back in 1917…

But apparently some unknown Agent of Authority thought exactly that when they commanded the South Norwood Community Festival – that fertile breeding ground of revolutionary thought – be shut down early just as The Boston Brew were about to take the stage and bring down the curtain on what had been a hugely successful, well-attended and inspiring display of together-tude, SE25-stylee.

Hugely successful against the odds, it needs to be added. What with the event’s alcohol license being withdrawn a mere 48 hours prior. Because – from what we’ve heard – the combination of 30 degree heat, alcohol and (quote) DJs, was far too volatile a combination to be permitted. Hmm, must be wonderful to just know whether or not an entire community can be trusted to behave, eh? Funnily enough, Denzil attended a similar event in similar weather in Crystal Palace the weekend before where the beer tents did a roaring trade. If there’s differences between SE19 and SE25, I’d love to know what they might be…

Ah, we could go on and on – about the miles petty bureaucratic bullshit the organisers had to wade through; about how they put their heart and soul into the event with no expectation of reward. But, at the end of the day, for those Brew fans who came – in some cases, literally – from miles around to see the combo, all everyone here can say is that we apologise for the screw-ups; that we’d also like to find out who was responsible, and that this setback won’t stop this band rockin’ – whatever The Man says!
