    The muusic is way too loud. It also sucks. All the drunks roaming the heights is not good.

    The May 9th concert did seem louder than last years’ shows. Driving the bass frequencies to distortion doesn’t help anything. I left early.

    Last night’s concert was fantastic. It was great seeing so many people out having a good time and Big Sam put on a great show. Having that assortment of food trucks on hand was a treat too. I’m looking forward to the next one.

    Way too loud it could be heard in concord village and it was a school night. I called the organizers and they seemed receptive to lowering the volume so hopefully next week will be better!
