Get Up At Cheer Ups! We Need You 6 Am Sun Down Now Til Friday Night. says
6AM -Sundown Thursday and Friday
Come in the morning or afternoon for as little or as much time as you can to hold space at Cheer Ups.

UPDATE: The contractors have left for the time being, they don't want to begin any sort of work as long as there are community members present and demonstrating.

This leads us to believe that if we are present on the site all day today and tomorrow, we can delay any scaffolding construction until Friday's stakeholder meeting. We need you here!

This means we need a presence between 6AM to sundown, today and tomorrow. Even if you just be here for a short period come down and show support.

LET'S SEE IF WE CAN HELP PUT THE BREAKS ON THIS CONSTRUCTION UNTIL NEXT WEEK. Cheer Ups needs at least a few days to figure out how they can deal with this inevitable construction situation. The developers have not given the venue or the community enough time to get their questions answered. We need to get them to push back any further construction until the situation can be properly assessed.

"Construction work on an underground parking garage for the new Hyatt House hotel off Red River Street in downtown Austin is allegedly threatening the business livelihood of a popular Austin music venue.
Cheer Up Charlie’s, an indoor and outdoor music venue that opened in the former Club De Ville space in late 2013, attracted attention over the weekend when owners Maggie Lea and Tamara Hoover used social media to criticize the Hyatt for work along the venue’s iconic white cliff wall.
The bar will have some of its outdoor gathering area and live music stage blocked off by fencing for up to 18 months to protect from rocks falling from the top of the cliff. A system of scaffolding will be in place for two weeks beginning June 23 so workers can remove native vegetation and other potential safety hazards.

The Hyatt’s initial plan early this year was to remove the cliff wall entirely, but representatives of landowner Tracy Rawl fought to prevent that from happening.
Hoover and Lea will receive $5,000 per month in compensation for the disruption to their business but she is concerned the impact on the bar’s atmosphere and programming could result in about $20,000 per month in lost revenue." -Chad Swiatecki, Austin Business Journal
