    Iconic Manchester music venue Night and Day faces closure because of a complaint from a neighbour. For those of you not familiar with Manchester, it's on Oldham Street, the heart of "alternative" Manchester. It's next door to the Dry Bar, originally opened by Factory Records and opposite Piccadilly Records, as fondly remembered by Morrissey in his book. This is a bit like someone moving to Times Square, complaining it's a bit busy and the City authorities taking them seriously.

    The venue hasn't been around long enough for The Smiths to have played there, but Johnny has a couple of times.

    If you're at all bothered, there's a petition: http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitio...emove-our-statutory-nuisance-abatement-notice

    It won't close though. Too many people love that place.

    They've already served a noise abatement order which, for a music venue, is as good as a closure notice. I hope you turn out to be right but, apparently, overturning a noise abatement order is not an easy thing to do unless you can prove that you weren't making a noise.
