Why do clubs crank the music up so loud? I mean, to the point where you cannot speak to the person next to you unless you scream at the top of your lungs directly into their ear? It seems so counter-intuitive to me because aren’t we there to meet people and socialize?
Sure, we go to dance too. But we could do that just as well with the music toned down just a bit. I have a hell of a loud voice (I used to give lectures to audiences of 1000 and more with no microphone), and if I have to yell to be heard, it’s just too darn loud.
Anyone else feel this way? Know of any places that have a more sane policy?
