I know that I sound like a stick in the mud today but really? I think it is great that the venue is here but if they could contain the sound within the area that would be lovely.

Is THAT why there was so much traffic on 71 earlier? I went to get some takeout from the Galleria and got stuck in a huge jam. What a pain!

Edit: I don't want to sound like a stick in the mud either, I am glad to have such a great venue close to home...

It's been in the area for a long time..why buy in the area if something like that is there and not your cup of tea. I know he moved down the street a couple of years ago but in the area (roughly)

Complaining about the sound at 9pm on a Saturday night?

Um, it may not be too loud, you just might be too...

As someone who lives in central Austin and had a involuntary soundtrack to my last walk with the dog last night, I have to laugh! The best advice is to learn to enjoy it.

Transmission of sound is widely variable. Temperature, humidity, wind are all important variables. Sound levels at the source do not always predict how and why the sound will spread and sometimes amplify.

No one made you move there. It's like the folks who move next to an airport and then complain about the noise.

If you want peace and quiet move to Round Rock. If you buy in the downtown Austinarea you are buying it to be near the action,etc.

This is Bee Cave, not downtown Austin. It took my husband over an hour to drive five miles home last night, due to this concert. Traffic was at a standstill on 71, so still that people were getting out of their cars and police were everywhere. I don't think we should have to deal with conditions like this out here in the Bee Cave area, even less so than if we were in Round Rock, really. It was loud too, but the worst part was the traffic madness it caused.

Liberty has many conditions.

One being choice.
Another is tolerance.


You had a choice to exercise your liberty, before you purchased your property.
Now that you are there, you wish to restrict another individual's liberty???
