Powerlunches closed and frankly it's shit. The place was a middle finger to corporate values and a real platform for getting good things done. Sorry to see it go - both because it was great, and because of what it says about the rising neoliberal tide in London that they felt it was 'unviable' to continue.
From their Facebook announcement:
“We all know it it has become increasingly difficult to do good stuff in a city that is so focused on making a profit without much concern for anything else but we’ve had 4 great years and we hope everyone will remember us fondly knowing we did our best to support independent bands and promoters in London.”
Fond memories for sure - but their run is also a resource for future action. Rest in Power.
