It was just another usual and quiet Tuesday in my little world up until I noticed something that really broke my heart. It was a status from one of my bbm contacts saying “But the demolition of House 22 is not a good idea…” When I read that my heart just sank.
Now I’m sure some of you reading this have heard of this already and others are only coming to find out about this now. From what I’ve gathered it’s something that has surfaced today in the late afternoon and you won’t be surprised to find yourself seeing a lot of the hash tag #SaveHouse22 floating around because it really is a place worth saving and I’m sure a lot of you will agree.
It is dream for a lot of up and coming Deep House djs to actually go and play at House 22 just as much as its almost every person who loves and enjoys Deep House to go to House 22 to witness and listen to not only our very own well known djs but some of the greatest International djs who have come to play there, of which some of them frequent there because it really is THAT go to place for good quality music and a great night out with fellow Deep House lovers.
Just this Sunday that we just came from, Kuniyuki Takahashi was there alongside Trev the Japanese, Bubbles and others. Also over the past months and years, we have seen the likes of Ralf Gum, Charles Webster, Lars Behrenroth among others playing there. Djs that have had sets there have thoroughly enjoyed themselves and so have the people who frequent the place.
If you too are sad to hear about this and wish that the demolition of such a great place doesn’t get implemented then here is what you can do. There is a petition going around that you can be a part of by simply signing it (electronically) and the more signatures it gets the more we can only hope this crazy idea will be stopped dead in its tracks. I have tried to get the full details as to why they want to demolish it but unfortunately my efforts have failed.
A big Thank You to Tebogo Modiba for starting this petition, it’s because of him we even know of this. If you would like to sign the petition then please click on the link below and also if you know of other House lovers who would be interested in joining this petition then please feel free to share the link with them.
Remember!!! The more signatures the petition gets, the more likely we will be able to keep House 22 alive.
