We are sad to report that there was a catastrophic earthquake in our city on 22nd February, 2011
The Als Bar building was subsequently demolished ... a decision which was out of our control.
This website is all that remains of one of the finest rock venues Christchurch has ever known.
This documentary contains a interview with Al Park (owner of Al's Bar) and other venue owners about the quakes and their immediate effects on the local music scene.
Keep on Rockin in the Free World !!
-- Al and the Crew
