MelloMello is to leave its Slater Street home next year, it’s been announced today.
A statement posted on their Facebook page has announced Mellostock II, a follow-up to their fundraising efforts in 2009 to secure their premises license – though this time they’re raising cash to put towards a new home, and some huge send-offs along the way.
You’ll remember Mello’s crowdfunding efforts last year: though they didn’t succeed in buying the building – it’s yet to be officially revealed who, and what they’re planning on doing with the place – Mello did turn themselves into a Community Interest Company. In 2012 Mello’s business rates were also vastly increased by Liverpool City Council.
Mellostock II is set to feature all of the space’s favourite artists and musicians, and it’s the start of a teary-but-celebratory 6-month-long goodbye to the building, also home to ace local music mag Bido Lito. “We are very much looking forward to taking everything we’ve learnt to a new premises and hope to have some big news very soon”, they confirm. Don’t miss, basically.
