Attendees of Tuesday night’s city council meeting will embark on a field trip to Fuzzy’s Taco Shop in order to gauge the noise created during a live performance.
Complaints from downtown residents Bryan and Laura Marsh, among others, prompted city staff to arrange the performance to determine what effect live music has on those living in the neighborhood.
Local musician Tommy Alverson will be providing the live music, though he said he prefers to stay out of the politics.
“I’m just going to do what I do,” he said, explaining he will be performing solo with an acoustic guitar and small amplifier. “I’m not trying to offend anybody.”
