HBH 196

In a quiet lane
noise carries too easily;
the neighbours complain.

Problems for Jianghu? Occasional run-ins with the police are inevitable for any live music venue, particularly ones in predominantly residential neighbourhoods (aren't they all?), but JH has been fairly lucky in keeping them to a minimum during its nearly 4 years of operation. But last night, some psycho bitch from the adjacent apartment block was berating them almost before the gig had started. And it wasn't even a very loud gig! But the cops were called, and they had to pull the plug after barely half an hour. A big disappointment, the more so because Jean-Sebastien and Ubuul seemed to be on especially scintillating form. I do hope this isn't going to be an ongoing, venue-threatening sort of conflict.
