music as torture

ok, i'm gonna preface this rant by saying i support the idea of attracting big name acts to play in halifax, using my tax dollars to increase tourism and local business is an acceptable idea, and i have nothing against the acts that played on the commons

ok, i'm gonna preface this rant by saying i support the idea of attracting big name acts to play in halifax, using my tax dollars to increase tourism and local business is an acceptable idea, and i have nothing against the acts that played on the commons (ie personal taste).

ok, rant time. who's bloody idea was it to stage on open-air concert in the middle of the city that has around ten acts. i was awaken at around 8:30 am with the first round of gear checks. there were several of those that lasted till noon when the the real fun began. for the next 11 hours i get to listen to acts performing 3 blocks away, sound bouncing off the nearby apartment buildings creating a numbing echo effect. i could swear when great big sea was singing in vocal harmony, my windows were vibrating a little. i don't want to imagine what it was like for people who are living right next to the commons and near the main stage.

i suggest the next open air concert be at point pleasant park. it is surrounded by water except for one side and if there's not enough room for the stage and audience, the stage could be on a large barge floating in the harbour. if the people living just north of point pleasant oppose the idea, just tell em it's for the good of the city.

too young to say "get off my lawn"
