An event held by an LGBT organization in Cadman Plaza Park on Saturday has at least one Brooklyn Heights resident angry over its loud music. McBrooklyn writes that an event billed as the GLBT Summer Affair was not only sparsely attended but that, “For the first 3 hours of the noise, the only ones in the park were the crew members that set up the sound system.”
Scheduled to appear at the event – DJ Frankie Paradise creator of this nifty house mix:
And DJ Andre Collins:
Despite the apparent quality of at least these two DJs, passersby weren’t amused McBrooklyn says.
McBrooklyn: People trying to walk through the park to get home are holding their hands over their ears because the music is so painfully loud.
Residents living along Cadman Plaza have called police, but what are the odds they will show up?
The same group played the same really bad, really loud music last year, including a three-hour rendition of “I Will Not Dance to Your War Drum” interspersed with Latinized Elton John tune.
