Well well well. What have we here?
Turns out that a member of Austin’s Live Music Task Force, Scott Trainer, is the guy who called the cops on Shady Grove Restaurant and turned ’em in for violating Austin’s stupid noise ordinance, as Shady Grove’s weekly Thursday “Unplugged” concert got underway last week. We know this thanks to the Austin American-Fishwrapper story, which also has the audio of Trainer’s 911 call to police.
I have a question for Mr. Trainer.
Where is it that you live, and did you move in before, or after, the Barton Springs Road scene became an Austin music mecca? Because if you moved in after, you remind me of one of those people who moves somewhere because it’s cool, then do your very best to suck the cool right out of the place. Moving to Barton Springs Road and expecting peace and quiet is like Captain Renault walking into Rick’s in Casablanca, then professing his shock…SHOCK…that there is gambling going on in this establishment.
So, really – I’d like to know…did you get yourself appointed to the Live Music Task Force to promote Austin’s live music scene? Or were you just representing neighborhoods in order to protect the Barton Springs Road area from the very essence of Barton Springs Road?
Also, I’d like to know why you don’t live in Round Rock.
