Say you wanna move to a city that’s known for its music, you wanna live close to downtown, and you want peace and quiet. Think you can get all three of those things at once?
You’d think that if you move into a building that’s close to music venues – Midtown, for example – then you’d most likely have to forfeit the tranquility until at least midnight or so (even later on the weekends), but some residents in the Midtown are fed up with all the noise. A petition has been launched online to amend the ordinance of eliminating music in these venues and support local musicians.
With over 2,400 e-signatures so far, the petition says,
Soulshine Pizza and other venues in the midtown Nashville area have been forced to STOP live music on their patios due to noise violations by a small contingency of people living in nearby condos. Their voices are small but ring loudly. Meanwhile hundreds of musicians, music fans, tourists and their families are being affected by the ordinance.
