I must be getting old.

I went to see a friend’s band play last night at a local club (the Sky Bar in Somerville). The band, Childhood Scar, was pretty good (and my friend was excellent), but holy crap, they were loud! This seems to be a theme in bands playing “rock” music that I’ve seen around here.

I know I sound like an old lady when I say it, but why the heck does the music have to be that loud?! They’re talented enough musicians that they can safely turn their instruments down to non-deafness inducing levels without exposing any underlying lack of skill, and doing so might actually encourage people to see them play.
