Geno’s Rock Club follows “Safe Space protocol” and that is awesome.


Geno’s Rock Club, the legendary punk venue in Portland, follows “Safe Space protocol.” They announced this on their Facebook page earlier this month, and said announcement is awesome:

Attn: performers. Geno’s is a venue that follows Safe Space protocol. What does that mean? That means:Scream fuck into the mic as loud as you want, bloody yourself up, that stuff we love. What we do not love and will not tolerate is hate speech of any kind. Anyone dropping racism, homophobia, misogyny, or slurs of any kind will find their gigs pulled with zero notice. We will literally unplug you if we have to. Consider this your only notice.
