What's Up with Fort Reno?

Fort Reno is one of the very few outdoor venues which features experimental music- most often youth oriented rock and rollers trying to break into the scene, but this year,  I'm sad to say, the park will be dark.

The whole shooting match is in jeopardy thanks to the indifference and bureaucracy of the Park Police who have stalled issuing this season's permit along with a new, and as yet, unexplained demand requiring a paid officer attend every event according to the venue organizer Amanda MacKaye. Please read what she has to say and decide for your self, but I get the feeling if we don't tell the Park Service this concert series is too important to lose, Fort Reno may be relegated back to the history buffs and the ghosts of the Civil War.

P.S. I hear some people had trouble with the link above so here's teh park service info.
