Last weekend many of us were basking in the rare sunshine that we get in San Francisco, enjoying the free music. It really is one of the best, most glorious weekends in the Bay Area, and it makes all those worries about the costs of living in the Bay Area fly away, if just for a few days.
Not for everyone though.
According to Reddit user named seablizz, a (hilarious) complaint was posted on NextDoor.com about the noise in Golden Gate Park this last weekend for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass.
One woman was SO INFURIATED by the noisiness of the park (seriously, how RUDE are those musicians just trying to play some free jams for a very expensive city?), she took to the site to complain to Supervisor Tang on behalf of herself, her husband, her 3 cats, and her “85-year-old neighbor JF who does not have email.”
They wanted to let the city officials know that the noise is NOT APPRECIATED at 11 am on a Sunday morning, and that they heard it on Friday night too! Seriously, it’s so rude. She also wants to know if it’s possible that these festivals are violating the federal Migratory Bird Act? Is it? Really the animals are suffering, probably. Maybe.
She suggests that they just move the festival somewhere downtown, preferably indoors with lots of soundproofing, because probably the estimated 700,000 people that attended the event could fit in, I don’t know, the Fillmore or something? How about the Masonic? (San Francisco’s AT&T Park has a capacity of just over 41,000.)
After all, it’s only been two months since “that other atrocity, Outside Lands” and this is just too much to handle.
And don’t even try to talk to her about “monies received help[ing] the SF budget” because, come on, the “SF budget is grossly inflated.”
