Georgia music fans join campaign to keep music venue alive

By DREW AMANDOLIA

The 7 Venue in Douglasville, Ga., is an all-ages Christian concert venue that specializes in local and touring metal bands. After the venue announced that its current location was going to be demolished for a road project, the Not Without A Fight Facebook page was started.

“I started the page because I didn’t know how else to help the seven, and [with] running my bands Facebook page, it just sort of came natural to me to use that method to express my opinions,” Rhys Rehberg said.

The page amassed more than 1000 likes on Facebook in just three days and has been steadily gaining more attention. The reaction to the page has been overwhelmingly positive.

“So many people have jumped on board, the seven adopted it as their official relocation campaign and even the newspapers are printing stories about it,” said Rehberg. “It’s been very inspiring to a lot of people and it’s gotten a lot of attention.”
