Unless you’re extremely fortunate, chances are, you’ve had to deal with terrible neighbours. Maybe you’ve lived beside frat boys who, when they’re not playing beer pong and foosball until 4 a.m., spend their time lounging in an inflatable kiddie pool on their porch, crushing Old Mils. Maybe you live beside a meth-smoking couple, who, when they’re arguing over Hydro bills, are fuck-murdering each other. Or maybe you’ve had the good fortune of sharing a semi-detached with Nina Willis.
Either way, many of us can empathize with this anonymous Vancouver man, who’s neighbours with a pair of “garbage-blasting” kids armed with a subwoofer. The resident, who lives in the Morgan Creek neighbourhood, is now hiring a three-piece rock band to combat his neighbours, and is offering $200 and beer for a six-hour set.
He expects the band to play right up until 10 p.m., when his neighbours can file noise complaints. He posted the following ad on Craigslist.
[quote]Hi-I am a nice neighbour. The two young kids beside me blast their subwoofer 24/7. I’m 39 and have put my life savings into this townhouse. Legally, they can blast their garbage all day till 10pm. I’m having a nervous breakdown. So I need a 3 piece band to come rock out and shut these ignorant east coasters down. Ill buy the beer and your cab ride to and from vancouver plus $200 to play from 4-10pm.[/quote]
So, who’s up for playing an impromptu house show?
