Turn it UP... Bring the Noise!

The Matterhorn has been getting more and more noise control complaints from residents of the Cuba/Victoria street area. There are NO rules on how loud is too loud, but is decided by the people who complain! We need your help to raise awareness on this issue, we have been playing great music at The 'Horn for over three years and now that is under threat! We Believe that those who live in the city should tolerate the noise, that there should be a "too loud" threshold that everyone can agree to and that there needs to be strict guidelines on soundproofing for inner city developers! Noise control complaints are killing the inner city! Pass it on!
