Seth Peters of Dead Horse Trauma has issued the following update about changing the venue for their upcoming "Infestation" CD release party on November 28th:

"Hey all, just a quick update on Dead Horse Trauma's CD release party in Lake View, IA. The concert has been moved due to circumstances beyond our control. Conveniently the show has been moved just right across the street. That’s right, were playing inside town hall. It will be on the second floor of the community building DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE AMERICAN LEGION. Signs will be posted so no worries on how to find the concert hall. This will be the only change to the concert, same great line-up, same great price, and a great opportunity to see the finest talent around. So know that I've explained that, let’s get down to how this took place.

"Have you ever been discriminated against because of your age or who you are? We obviously have. There was an agreement made between our booking agent and the Lake View American Legion Hall to rent out their building; the price was given, the agreement was made, and the date was set. I go visit the venue and check out the aesthetics, still no problem. Then they start seeing the posters and see the media coverage and now there's an issue. Here's what they came at me with: Issue 1.) Alcohol....to which we replied no problem, dry party, we will serve cookies and milk if that pleases you...Issue 2,) Too many people...to which we replied, ‘what is the fire marshal code on the building...’...they had the nerve to tell me they didn't know, which makes any event that they hold there AGAINST THE LAW, yet they continue to hold their own events.... so they have someone come and take measurements telling us that they would know immediately by putting the measurements into a formula provided by the fire marshal himself.

"Turns out; they ‘claim’, there is no formula NOW and that they need the fire marshal to come measure himself which conveniently is too close to the date of the show to plan any further......Issue 3.) The chief of police claims we caused problems when we played on the beach at this past years Water Carnival, any one of the 150-200 people that were there can tell you that is most definitely not the case, nor have we ever been destructive or caused disturbances.......we went to the source himself (Ted Helmich, Chief of Police) and he couldn't come up with one disturbance caused at our beach show this past summer, funny how that works isn't it?

"The short and skinny of it is that these ‘older generation’ of folks don't want young people to have a good time in their building. They are in breach of contract and they know it. Action will be taken against them. That’s probably enough for now. So in RECAP: SHOW HAS BEEN MOVED DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STREET AT THE CITY HALL BUILDING, 2ND FLOOR.....NOVEMBER 28th at 6:00 p.m.....DEAD HORSE TRAUMA....ANCIENT ELM...CHASING SILENCE.........LIONSLICER......any further questions can be directed towards the Lake View American Legion Hall and its members. You can personally tell them how their ignorance is holding your community down. Thanks for reading everybody. We will see you all very, very soon"
