The riots and the Vortex

Just to say that the Vortex is fine, though the impact of the current disturbances are economic and uncertain. First, that it's cost the club and the musicians money to be closed for the past 2 days - probably up to £1000 so far. Small compared to those shops who have been looted, but still important to us.
Second, there is the insecurity after the things have all calmed down. Already some people have cancelled tickets for future dates as they don't want to risk Dalston.
So the past days undo some of the successes of the club over the past 6 years. Hopefully temporarily though.
