I have just read what might be one of the most preposterous and idiotic bill proposals EVER over at The Examiner. Apparently, in Cleveland, Ohio, there are people who are pushing to pass a bill that would ensure that no live music can exceed the volume of an unplugged, unamplified acoustic instrument. Yeah, you just read that right, no amps, no sound systems, etc… If this were some small town with a population of 250, I might understand. You plug a guitar in and everyone would hear that. But this is something straight out of 1984. But that’s not all, oh no. Read past the break for some other “concessions” that would need to be followed. On top of no plugged in instruments, there is this provision regarding any business that provides “entertainment” (such as bars, clubs, concert venues, etc…): “No such use will be located within five hundred (500) feet of another such use if either use is located in a Local Retail or Residential District.”
