Back in February the Pug Skullz played at the Where House? in Sacramento, here’s a small chunk of video footage (photos, too!) proving that fact (followed by a disturbing message from our good friend Matt who runs the Where House? and the Colony):

And now that message from Matt:

Hello everyone, its been a while since I made a post here and I just need to be straight with everyone and let you know what’s going on. On march 16 I got a visit by sac pd entertainment department during a show. Due to certain circumstances the show was not shut down, but they were not happy with that. In the weeks that followed I got several visit from fire marshals, and zoning agents. After that was done the where house was left with a capacity of 49 people. Because of that many of the shows were moved to different locations, and I was left with the decision of keeping it or letting it go. So I have decided to let it go. At the end of may I will be closing the where house. My goal is to find a new location that can meet what the county wants and still allow me to do it the way that I want to. This was not an easy decision to make and it makes me sad to think about it. I would like to thank Edward Young and Rachel Hanna from rise entertainment, without them I don’t think the where house would have gotten to where it is today, I miss you guys. Also the other members of The Barfly Effect who supported us all the way, thank you kasey, Julie, and Brian I miss you guys just as much. I really want to thanks a lot more such as Nathan donnell, Danny secretion, mickie ratt, Benjamin Abel, vic salazar, and of course Sunny D for all of the help and support over the last few months. So as of right now there is one show on may 18 that everyone should come to, and I do not have a date yet but at the end of may I will be doing one last show that will be free. To say goodbye. Thank you everyone that has supported, all the bands that have played, and all of the people that came out to a show, without you guys none of this would be possible.

Pug Skullz would like to encourage everyone to get out to all the shows at the Colony and these last remaining shows at the Where House? Especially the final show, just announced last night. The event is called ‘The End,’ the link goes to the Facebook event page. It’s very important to support the local scene, especially those who lay their hard earned money on the line to establish venues for shows. It might not hurt to let city officials know they’re hurting the local economy every time they push against the artists.

Stay tuned for information on an upcoming Pug Skullz show…
