The Diesel Jeans sponsored Rock n Roll Circus scheduled for tomorrow night (10/11) on Pier 3 and featuring Franz Ferdinand and others has the BHA and some Brooklyn Heights residents reaching for their Flents ear plugs. So much so that the organization has sent an urgent dispatch to their members informing them of what counter-measures they can deploy to fight loud sounds of youth gone wild. The show has a permit to rock out until 2AM.
Good thing the BHA didn’t get the memo that the edgy Vice Magazine is the show’s media partner — which means ANYTHING can happen on that pier tomorrow night (click this link at your own risk). The fact that tickets are impossible to come by unless you picked them up at a Diesel store this week (our bigwig music industry friends are having trouble getting tix!) should add to the “circus” atmosphere tomorrow night as stragglers and scalpers try to hook up with each other before showtime.
Full BHA letter after the jump.
Dear BHA Member:
If you’re wondering where the loud, amplified music that blasted through the Heights this morning was coming from, here’s the answer:
Diesel (the designer jeans company) has been given a permit for a huge anniversary party on Pier 3 on Saturday night, Oct. 11th.
The permit allows the party — and the music — to continue until 2AM! 5,000 people have been invited (from the fashion industry).
Today, the sound system for the event was tested. From the wave of phone calls our office received, there’s still a lot to be done to lower the decibels. Promises have been made about sound proofing the tents, and we’ve already called the organizers several times this afternoon to complain. They’re still “working on it”.
Tomorrow night, if you are kept awake by loud music, it is essential to call 311 to register a noise complaint. Please also notify the BHA via email or call 718-858-9193. Our answering machine will probably fill up with angry messages on Saturday night!
We hope to prevent this kind of situation in the future, as there ought to be a protocol established for use of the piers, before Brooklyn Bridge Park is built.
Oh and N*E*R*D* is playing, better stock up on the digitalis –
