I spent the the last 5 days down in New Orleans for New Years Eve holiday.
At the Famous Door the drum location has an odd Plexiglas wall around it. It’s a permanent fixture so it’s there regardless of who’s playing. Here is a video of the place with the clear wall I’m speaking of.
One of the employees said it had something to do with acoustics, but I call bullshit:dubious:. I’ve been to bars and clubs all over the U.S. and the world and never have seen such a thing that I can remember.
I keep thinking of the chicken wire scene in the Blues Brothers. Maybe the drummers kept getting shot and needed bullet proof glass.
But seriously. Any clue? I’ve never seen this set up before. Was the employee right?
