Last week we reported on the potential troubles looming for famed London nightspot Plastic People, home to numerous boundary-pushing parties, including legendary dubstep/grime night FWD. While the club's future remains up in the air for now, in recent days an online petition entitled "Keep Plastic People Alive" has surfaced. Supporters are encouraged to add their name, as the petition will be presented to the local Hackney town council alongside letters from supporters and official materials from the club's management.
Those looking to keep tabs on further developments should also consider joining the "Keep Plastic People Alive" Facebook group.
