I can’t begin to count the amount of times I’ve been to a house show that has been shut down by the police due to noise complaints. It’s outrageously common, and for many touring bands, an unfortunate risk they are forced to take when booking shows.

Regardless, there are situations such as the one below, where the powers that be present a reasonable solution to the issue at hand: keep playing, just turn the noise down a bit.  

Brian Van Buskirk, guitarist for Rise Records band Light Up The Sky, shared the following video on his personal Facebook page.
