Knob Adjustment

(CLICK TO ENLARGE) Instead of adjusting his uncooperative attitude toward northeast D.C. residents and businesses, a member of the Israelite School of Universal Practical Knowledge (ISUPK) adjusts a knob on his group’s blaring 13 pound Fender Amp Can on Saturday, July 8.

The city council may be on its summer recess, but that doesn’t spell relief from hours of amplified noise for the residents and businesses at H and 8th Streets NE.

Saturday, July 22 marked yet another afternoon of obnoxious amplified ranting by the usual noisemaking group. It spent nearly five hours blasting the busy bus stop as well as the homes and businesses surrounding it. The fellows packed up their van and headed out of town only minutes before an evening downpour soaked the area.

Upon the city council’s return, area voters hope a fix to the D.C. noise law tops their list.
